He had to find 10 words, I explained to him what to do, then sat in shock as he completed it in no more than 90 secondsshocksmile

I am making some crosswords up for him with word processor, he is ASD, with a severe language delay, he is 6.6, with verbal skills he averages at a 3.3 year old, but non verbal skills he averahes at a 9 year old, must be so frustrating for himsad

DS 3.5 has severe language delay too (not been assessed for ASD yet), so sounds like our boys are similar. Lovely to hear about his crossword achievements .

It's amazing though, the things our kids find easy - jigsaws etc, when the whole language/conversation stuff is such a challenge.

Oh right, not a newbie thensmile

Yep, its like ds is at 2 different development stages, which I suppose is exactly the case.

DS is really AS, but was DX with ASD, because children with AS are generally very bright, but because of DS language disorder he is put back, but any task that is non verbal he always averages at a 9yr old, I was told by DX him ASD would mean he gets more support and help.
