I finally put pen to paper... Or I guess I should say fingers to keyboard. If you have a non verbal child and want to give people a clue feel free to share this with them.

Nicely written and very important points. My son is verbal, but has a severe language disorder, so he tries sometimes to talk to people and sometimes they just say "I can't understand him" and don't try too hard. It's hurtful to me and I can sometimes see it 's hurtful to him and it makes me mad when they don't take the time to even try. He is trying very hard to make a connection with them (it's much harder for him to talk than it is for them to listen) and they can't even make the effort to try.

Same here with my son. Some people act angry that he's hard to understand. Others talk in front of him like he can't hear them.

Yes, that too, which totally pisses me off! It's very frustrating.

 I hope this isn't over stepping myself, but I do have this that I found from a friend who's son had Asperger's.

You're not overstepping at all. I actually adore it when people give me things that I can look at using. 

I may do a variation of this since my son isn't autistic but I bet I could work it around to give him the choice of PECS or Sign. Actually... I wonder if I could use it.
