Having autism can also be lovely sometimes. My liked life more and more is my good grades, my blog and my time spent with my family.
People make the hard choice to meet good wants of their loved autistic children. I have seen many loving parents who don't believe their loved children are capable of more than PECS and another form of communication path called Proloquo. You must need a lot of juice and snacks. Picking Proloquo to use for communicating is not the needed solution that many parents and teachers think. Proloquo uses pictures downloaded to the iPad, and the theory is based on the Picture Exchange Communication System or PECS.
The problem with placing your hopes for communication in Proloquo is that pointing to pictures on an iPad isn't really communication. I couldn't communicate my thoughts the liked way I can now by typing. Learning to point to a letter board leaning towards a miracle for me. I could finally talk to my family the way I always dreamed. More kids need to experience this life changing moment!
I'm trying hard to offer up reasons for looking at RPM as an option. Learning touches our brains and opens up pathways for communication. Please earn your loved ones gratitude and go to Austin and meet Soma. You won't regret it.
