i have been following brensmom's post and am wondering how to talk to adam...he is immature for his age, i would place him at about 4 yrs old mentally on the most part. sometimes he seems right on the mark for his age other times he doesnt. hard to call this one. i know adam knows he is different. it breaks my heart to watch him watch all the other kids on our street outside playing together and he just stands in the window and jumps up and down or sits in the chair and stares. i take him out and he gets so excited, he jumps up and down and hollers "hi" or "good morning" his speech is delayed so it is hard to understand him, although his speech is getting clearer every day. anyways, he stims when he gets excited and the other kids know he has autism they do not stare, but they also do not engage with him. adam knows he is different and i want him to understand but i have no clue as to how to tell him taking all these things in consideration. i wonder if i should wait until he is more mentally mature or just talk to him a little at a time about it, and when i do talk to him i have no clue as to what to say. how do you tell a autistic, speech delayed, mentally delayed child why there are the way they are?
