My son has been diagnosed with ASD at the age 3.5 years.He has a good eye contact but cant speak. Only speak what he want like water, biscuits, chocolate. Due to lockdown i am doing OT n speech session online. Sessions started around 3 months back n due to lots of effort he is following single commands also started speaking new words but cant talk full sentences. Plus he is repeating whatever i am talking to him without understanding the meaning (echolalia). Shall I consider this as a progress in speech ?? If yes can someone tell me how to handle echolalia? If someone has faced the same problem in the past plz guide n plz tell if the kid started talking after echolalia? I am tensed.
