Yesterday I found a site called Natural  Learning Concepts that currently has a free e-book to download called What Does It Mean to Have Autism: A Fresh Outlook That WIll Alter Your View.  The website is http://www.nlconcepts.com  It is 38 pages long including the cover so be sure you have printer ink -grin- but it was worth printing.  You could alternately downlaod it and save it to your documents just for viewing and avoid the printing altogether. is The best infromation  in it contained the  concept of a communication staircase that can help you  visualize wher your child currently in communication skills.  The foundation of ther staircase was WORDS and the steps continued like this, LABEL, PROCESS, CATEGORIZE, CONCEPTS, SENTENCES, DESCRIBE, RESPOND, ASK QUESTIONS, RECIPROCATE, AND SOCIAL SKILLS. It goes on to descr ibe each of these areas adn of course suggest some of their teaching material available to help you teach your child that particular skill area.  If you are creative I think you could make similar teaching tools by usign their samples as a springboard.
