Hi everyone my nearly 4 year old has just been diagnosed as having autism. This really was a shook as I don't even know of any one who has autism so I no nothing about it.
Shay doesn't talk at all even though lately he is makin a lot of sounds and he is really trying.
He is goin to be starting school in August who have a special class for autisic children, fingers crossed he will come on in leaps and bounds
Usually he is a good child and understands everything we say, to a point that is.
I was just hoping you should all share any tips on how to encourage speech and also on potty training I would really like him to b potty trained before he starts school.
I did try a few months back and he would sit on the potty but he didn't no why he was there. He would pee on the floor and he wouldn't flinch.
Any help at all would greatly appreciated
