yes she is autistic and yes she went to pre school and she went to the 1 st grade last yr and she got all A and she learnt to write she is a good righter but there are some things she is slow with and potty training is one the dr said she would potty train when she wants to but we dont know when that will be . so i guess we will just keep trying and pray that she will get it before long and yes she has a pec book she uses it also we are in the process in getting her a dino vox

Hummm ... is she in school? Did she attend pre school and kindergarten? Was she in the first last year?
What does the school have to say? What do her teacher's have to say?
Has she been diganosed with a disability?
Early intervention is critical!!!!! I am thinking the worst here ... that she has never been to school and never been to see a professional about this. If that is the case, get her in today, today.
If she is in school, has a plan, has a diganoses .... follow it. Many kids with different condistions talk late, train late ... most do train at some point, not all talk .... but many kids sign, or use reader boards, or talking assistance and something will be worked out for her .... don't compare her to same age kids. She is her own person and will develop at her own rate ....
