my son goes to UCP in tampa i want so much for him to learn what do i need todo to help him
I found best, for my son, use what he is interested in. Play off the likes. Likes trains? Work on reading with Thomas the Train books. Likes cars? Math by adding and subtracting cars from a pile. StarFall is a great website for reading and Cool Math Games is fun for math. Science type stuff? Use art projects, talk about the science while crafting.
When my son was that age. He won't listen to anybody. I just bought him educational toys, vhs, dvds, fridge magnets, electronics, drawing papers, crayons and etc... I even bought a globe that talks LOL. He didn't like it. Finally, we found what he's good at. Just keep on introducing stuff to him.
Welcome to the group! You made the right decision in joining this group to help your son reach his full potential in life. I also recommend joining a local support group to locate local resources to help your son through Autism Speaks (http://www.autismspeaks.org/), Easter Seals (http://www.easterseals.org/), and Autism Society (http://www.autism-society.org/). I recommend reinforcing what he learns in therapy and in his education because it will help him reach his full potential in life. Update his school when he gets his diagnosis with the papers (http://www.wrightslaw.com/). You can find activities for him to do through Special Olympics (http://www.specialolympics.org/), Variety Club (http://www.usvariety.org/), and TheARC (http://www.thearc.org/).

My son is 5 yrs old. Im still trying to figure this out myself. He is nonverbal and very hyperactive. I loves music and animals. So I tried taking him to te zoo and buying him drums and musical instruments but nothing seems to work. I pray you find your solution.

Quoting Koltie6:iPad is amazing . There are many awesome apps . My 6 year old can read many site words he learned it from playing on IPad. There are even free ones available to children with Autism.
Take things very slowly. keep on a tight schedule. and use visual items to help him learn. They even have apps at the app store that would keep him entertained when you are at resturants, etc. Check with your local school system if he has a diagnosis then they MUST supply him services year around.
