Babbling Autisic Child

Babbling (also called twaddling) is a stage in child language acquisition, during which an infant appears to be experimenting with uttering sounds of language, but not yet producing any recognizable words. Babbling begins at approximately 5 to 7 months of age, when a baby's noises begin to sound like phonemes. Infants begin to produce recognizable words usually around 12 months, though babbling may continue for some time afterward.

Seminars are offered to parents to help us how to deal with autism. Problems that occur one after the other. One those is the communication, communicating with an autistic child is very hard since most of them are non-verbal. If your child starts to babble, you should always pay attention to the words or sounds they emit, example if the child says " dada" then take him to his daddy, do the same with "mama". If the child is saying "bol, bol" then show a ball. Be creative always find a thing with his "words"
