Language is his big deficit, but he is making progress. 3 months ago he had zero words.
He sounds almost exactly like my son except that your boy is progressing much faster with speech. Our therapists and doctors are not at all concerned about autism.

They work on his sensory needs, and help get him prepared to function in a kindy class. His class is small, and they have an OT, ST, preschool teacher, and a para for 10 kids.
This is so great to hear! We will be starting preschool in September and our boy will have a speech therapist and personal assistant so I love to hear the success stories!
