You asked on the other thread about blowing using a straw and puckering. DS cant blow or pucker - he can use a straw but has only mastered it in this past year- he is 4.3. ASD Does this mean something?

oh depending on if your ds is verbal or not was something my salt used to point towards verbal and oral dyspraxia as well as receptive delayFor my ds.He can not make any sounds just mostly oo and ah

Think was clearer in his case as they all agreed ds does not have ASD rather been given GDD , social and communication disorder ,hypermoblity , low muscle tone and the dyspraxia.Think the asd ruled out as ds does want to communicate and seeks people out

ds can make different sounds but I dont think he does the full range. Actually Im sure I've looked into dyspraxia before but I cant remember what I found.

BTW DS also seeks people out and tries to communicate in his own way.

does ds make any words at all ?.Might be worth you mentioning it to salt when you see one

he has done in the past but does not now.

ah that might rule it out all depends on if the words wererecognisable at the time.

Guessing they are putting a lot of it down to teh ASd but telkl your salt about not being able to blow or pucker up for a kiss.Mind not that it gets Ds any more salt here infact since dx with it he gets less as considered to severe
