One mom’s unusual idea leads to communication breakthrough

Autism Awareness Month:
Matthew’s Road to Communicationmatthew

Matthew has autism and speech apraxia.
Until he was almost 3 years old, he could not communicate.

A therapist gave Matthew a Baby Signing Time video. And it changed his life. He began to initiate communication through signs!

Soon after, Matthew’s mom asked herself: If a little bit of sign language is good for my son, what would happen if he were exposed to a lot of it? What if Matthew could attend a school where everyone used sign language, like a school for the deaf?
