Help with parenting an Autistic Child who cannot speak

Conor and Eoin were not speaking so they needed speech therapy, right? Well, not exactly. As time went on we discovered that the reasons our sons were not speaking had a myriad of causes. These conditions can exist alone, or in our case together. Over time we started to become aware of each separate problem. And we realized that we needed to understand and treat all issues preventing speech and language. Much like joining links in a chain.

Ultimately we discovered the boys were suffering from several issues which affected all of the primary language centers in the brain.  This lead to a dismal future prognosis, of our boys not talking. Below are a number of parenting posts that shine light on our search for a solution. We have compiled these posts to help other parents understand the problems with children who are not speaking.

I hope this will be of help to you, feel free to contact me about your child.

Enda.

Find the best answers to help your child communicate.

We are sharing our experience with other parents so that all Autistic children can learn to communicate and succeed.

I have never met anyone who has re-conceptualized language learning in the way Enda and his team has.

This is something I have always thought could be possible, it is wonderful seeing this research come to life!

The Disney approach has been extraordinary particularly in the teaching of social and emotional language.
