Before reading this book, I wasn't really sure exactly what type of speech delay he had, or what the future held for us. This book definitely outlined the types of delays that are typical and how to get them to the next level. Before this book, I didn't even understand what the next level would be. I knew conversation was a goal of ours, but it just seemed in the the distant future. Now we have attainable goals and methods to get there.
My son has not been diagnosed with autism, but he fits the descriptions in this book. With the help and suggestions in "More than Words," my son has already started expressing ideas that he wasn't last week. I also recommend the "action" flash cards advertised on amazon as well. The photos are bright and colorful - and my son loves them!
I would recommend this book to anyone with a child with a speech/comprehension delay.
