What do you do or say when a stranger talks to him and he doesn't answer? I never know if I should just say nothing and just smile or tell them he has autism or what. He's 2.5 now, so people are defintely expecting a response. I have no problem with people knowing he has autism, but I never know when the volunteer the information when people are interacting with him.
I always tell him if he insists on being adorable then he needs to start talking, because people always want to talk to cute kids.
