"When will my child learn to talk?" This is a common question on the mind of many parents with a young child with autism.

It's not just about talking, though. Young children with autism often struggle to make eye contact, to use gestures like pointing, and to take turns and play with their peers.

Early intervention is an important step for teaching these skills to young children with autism. If a child can look at others, learn from others, and interact with others, this paves the way for a lifetime of learning. Yes, even talking.
