When I hear some one tell the 3 year old or 4 year old to "shut up" I get sad. they just don't know the pain of not hearing those words. yes my autistic 3 year old says about 10 words but not mom, ilove you, stuff that will melt my heart when he fianlly says.I keep praying and knowing that some day there will be a cure for this and children will not have to go through this anymore.

i for one understand exactly what youre going thru except my son is 3 1/2 and he doesnt speak at all. he was just recently diagnosed with autism and will start school in august to help him learn to talk. im trying to be very possitive and hopeful that him going to school will get him on track. i would love to know how your son is doing and the progress he has made so far.

I understand what your goin through completely my son is 3 only says around 10 words and the school has just give him the autism diagnosis. Ppl really take for granted the little things like saying all those things u wanna hear like I love u an what ive started doing is having my son sign those things to me which makes me feel a lot better. But I pray for the day when I hear him say that!

There are a lot of people out there that do not need to be parents. It is very sad, but you just have to turn your head and pray for them. I feel really bad for the kids because they do not deserve that. No one does

my son is 2 1/2 and was diagnosed with pdd just after his 2nd birthday, i have 2 older kids and a 11month old, i still haven't heard one word from him except constant babbles. one would think with 2 talkatives for siblings he will not have any problem talking, my 11month old imitates everything i say and do but my son doesn't even answer to his name or understand me, it hurts me everyday and am praying and hoping that it will happen one day. my only comfort though is that he is very cuddly and affectionate and luvs to kiss my face endlessly

My son is now 7 but wasn't talking at 3 either. He hasn't had any speech therapy other than at school. We started with the repeat after me one word at a time. It was a long slow process but he now will say I love you after you have said it to him. Keep praying and it will happen. I know because it did for me.

This topic really hits home for me,,,,I am even tearing up right now. My son is 2.5 and I am soon to get him diagnosed end of May. He shows many signs of autism one of them being nonverbal. He has no words but does babble and squeals a lot,,,soo far from quiet. ppl will try to tell me be thankful he isnt talking yet,,,I never understood why it would be a bad thing, I would rather understand what he wants. :(

My 4 yr old diagnosed with autism is now saying his abs and singing along to his favorite songs. I was too in the same position . My son said only two words up to a little after his 4th birthday until then it was a lot of tugging and pulling to show me what he wanted. I thank god for his teachers and speech therapist. My heart goes out to you , but it gets better!

There is hope still, please dont ever give up. My autistic son stopped talking at about 2 when he was just said dada and some times mama. he stoped for about 2 1/2 years but with work and LOTS of PRAYER. He now is one of those kids where you say he couldnt talk, now he dont shut up. lol And that is how I like it.

I know exactly what you mean my son is four and he has autism and he is just in last few months started to talk. When your son does say the words it will be a cloud 9 day. i have my son in a kids 1st program and they have helped him so much but the one thing that matters is time and i know that is hard. I am sorry you hurt but you are not alone i cried so much because all i wanted to here was mommy too and now every word makes me cry i wish you the best

I have a beautiful neice who was diagnosed with Autism at 2. When she was 1 she said DaDa and Ma....you know the basic baby talk. Then she started regressing and has never spoken again. She understands a lot and can direct us to what she needs or wants through pictures posted through out the house or by pulling us to what she needs but we have never heard her speak. She is five now and still in diapers...cannot communicate well enough to potty train. She is precious and I just do not understand God's purpose behind this. My brother and his wife are the most beautiful and patient parents I have ever seen and I have faith that someday my neice will say something and it will be a celebration like no other. You will likely hear about it in the news. LOL

Stay strong and have faith that God will take care of you and your child for His purpose.

The best advice I can give you is to constantly say "I love you" and/or "mommy loves you". Say it as much as you can to him whether you think he is listening to you or not. because he is listening to you and watching you he is just doing it in his own way. I always said it to my son and eventually he said it back, and yes it will melt your heart it still melts mine. But really, don't dwell on it just enjoy every second you have together and one day you will hear what you have been hopeing for.

Hang in there moms! My son with autism barely said anything until he was 4. Now, at almost 7, with much speech and some signing, he speaks a lot and fairly well...though he continues with speech classes at school. One thing that helped me get through that time was making "I love you" with my fingers, helping him to form it with his, and pressing them together mirrored while saying it, as well as signing it...This also makes you feel wonderful! When he would do it, I always gave big hugs, huge smiles, and applause. He eventually initiated it, then once language flowed more that came too! Just think how much more it will mean to you once he does say it..compared to the "typical people" that just throw it out there casually.

Hi Celina, My son will be 2 in a few weeks and I've yet to hear mom, or any word for that matter. He was recently diagnosed as being in the autistic spectrum. I couldn't help but reply to your post as it hit home. I so relate to how you feel. BUT, they will eventually say it...I just know it. And yes, hearts will melt.

I know how you feel. It is almost painful sometimes to be around other children my sons age or even younger who are talking. People will always say things like, "you are lucky he doesn't talk because mine wont shutup" but that is not how i feel. I know they are just trying to say it to make me feel better but it doesn't. I would be happy even if my son started saying "no" to me like most kids get in the habit of. I almost thought he said it the other day and it made me happy but I'm not sure if he was saying no or just making sounds. He just started recieving speech therapy so I hope that will start him talking. He is finally getting his autism evaluation on tue. so I hope we can find something out that will help him.

(((BIG HUGS TO ALL OF YOU))) I too also have a daughter diagnosed with Autism. She still struggle to say two words, with ABA and school. I thank God that, the only word she can say clearly is MOM or MY MOMMY! I cried every single day since she was diagnosed two years ago. It is painful to feel that my daughter cannot have a conversation with me or will....I have a pain inside me that I cannot explain. I am and will wait for that day that she can finally will....

I am right there with you!! My son called my Mommy. He had a vocab of 10 words then between 1 and 1 1/2 he regressed. At that time my daughter was learning to speak because she wasn't picking anything up from her brother she didn't do anything other than grunt until she was almost two. No one called me Mommy for what seemed like an eternity!!! I was so jealous of other mother's - I'll be honest! Then as his speech started growing and my daughter started talking - I cried and cried at the day care the day I picked him up and they said he called another mom mommy. He was three. It was a week later he called me mommy! My daughter soon followed. After a year plus of therapy - they fight, argue, ask each other questions, and they read to each other. The best thing in life is hearing your children call you mommy. Be patient. It'll happen!!

I can't agree with you more! Some people just don't realize how lucky they are. You are not alone. My son's first word came when he was 31/2 years old and "Mommy" came even later than that. It did melt my heart. If your son is acquiring language, then "Mommy" and "I love you" will come. Just keep saying the words and modeling them for him. He will do it and you will be so proud when he does! Stay positive.

(((Hugs)))
I know exactly what you mean! My son is 3 in november and recently diagnosed with ASD and while his vocab range is slowly expanding, I still don't get mum or I love you and rarely am I able to understand what he wants. Ppl are always telling me not to be in such a hurry to have him talking because once he starts he wont shut up, well I would rather have him talking at me 24/7 using real words that I can understand or just get told once "mum I love you" than having to struggle everyday to understand what he wants, which in turns gets him frustrated as he can't let me know what he is after.

I carnt really understand how this feels as my AS child can tell me this, but just because he doesnt say it, it doesnt not mean he doesnt love you any less than any other 3yr old, i'm sure you can see this in other ways. i too hope their will be a cure as i feel, as parents we can suffer more wishing for are children to see the world like most others but we also have to remember these children dont know any different and in their own little ways are content being who they are!
