Poor communication skills in PDD is very disheartening to experience. Any speech stimulation requires a very deep connection with the child. Use PECS method to do intense speech work (at word and expression level ) for couple of hours everyday. He needs to learn basic everyday words first. He also needs a PECS guidance to express 'anger', 'hunger' etc. How he learns this will decide the next step.
My heart goes out for you. Your gentle patience, firm persistence, and unconditional love is the only support he has.
Let me know what the therapist there plans to do.
He talks to me and expressess all his needs and wants and even anger is expressed. I want to increase his spontaneous speech and in general awareness and sharing about the environment around us. I am not able to increase his spontaneous speech because he keeps talking and talking without listening to what I ask. Can you help me with your suggestions?
