I was just wondering around what age did you really start to see changes in your child with their autism. Where they started talking to you, and actually understand you when you talk to them. The other thing is my son is 7 yrs. old, and he's still not potty trained. It's like it doesn't even bother him what so ever. That to me means he's not ready. And every single time I try to practice with him. No matter how many rewards, or different nothings working. It would be one thing if he could change his own pull ups. But I'm the one who has to do it. Which makes outings difficult. And that's why this is so depressing, because even when we try it seems like he can never enjoy himself. Or he makes things extremely difficult. So we don't really do anything, but stay at home. It's a very depressing life. That's why I was wondering about what age do you start to see improvement. Where you can understand them and they can understand you.
