My 4 year old Autistic son still babbles and his method of communication is either a scream or some makaton signing. He has multiple sensory issues and is constantly covering his ears and eyes but so far we had not figured out if he does this because its too loud, or if there is a noise he can hear but we cannot. Anyway, yesterday i was in Kmart and there was a presentation going on with the opening of the Kmart wishing tree for Xmas. Cut a long story short, my son covered his ears and began to cry. I bent down to him and he said "Too noise, go outside".
It was a huge achievement for us and of course we left everything and did as he asked.
