This sounds bad and I know it does but Ette picked up a word-not one any of us say but it just came out in the natural flow of his strange speech- we were saying tickle, tickle, tickle, and for some reason he started to say-nigga, nigga, nigga, he repeats alot of words like this-so far off from what you said that only mom would know what he means kind of thing-but the other day we were waiting in line at walmart and I was trying to keep him in the cart so I started to tickle him and wouldnt you know it he starts to talk back-nigga, nigga, nigga, -I got sooooo many bad looks yesterday, I cant correct him, I cant discourage any speech he offers, he rarly talks to me at all, so I relish anything that comes out of his mouth-but man-could he have picked a worse sound? Honestly this is not something he heard-just the way his word comes out. This is just another wonder of Autism, how do you stop a behavior that you are 100% supporting and have been dying for. Speech is all we've wanted for the past 4 years and now Im afraid that someone will lash out at him and he will go back to not wanting to talk at all. If I sound like Im making to much of this-we'll he really likes to be tickled and he askes for it-ALOT-
