still no words

still no words

well, it's been almost two months since sir dantes turned four years old...and still no words. am i hoping for miracles? sigh! okay, maybe i am a bit over anxious waiting for that day he'll say "hi mommy", but i do have other milestones to report.

i know i have said it before, but progress with a child who has autism often happens in a pattern that resembles a staircase; a burst of advances followed by a period with stagnation. at least, that is how our therapist explained it. a typical child's progress is more like the side of a steep hill. this comparison got me to thinking why so many parents don't really notice the signs of autism until around the age of two and their child is suddenly (though not really suddenly) so far behind other children the same age.
