the first thing I did when my son now 41/2 was diagnosed was learn all I could. Then every opportunity I got, I spent teaching him. Flash cards, playdough, fingerpaint, you name it. in the past two years he went from non verbal to speaking in short sentences. we started with pecs (picture exchange cards) and he no longer needs them. get involved in therapies. Childrens Hospital has alot of resources. support groups. and the internet. good luck there is hope and remember God never gives you more than you can handle He is with you. if you need more info I will look for you to reply ok.
