Why do you think early intervention is important to autism awareness?
I am a mother to a 3.5 year old son and was recently diagnosed with autism, he is slightly non-verbal and still can't communicate with mommy and daddy, or tell us what he wants. We can't hold a conversation or ask a simple question, like how are you today? what did you do at school? or are you hungry, happy, sad or hot/cold?
Im not sure I understand your question? Of course the earlier you know about it the better but I am not sure what you mean by "early intervention".
Early intervention will work with your son and possibly you and your husband as well. They may try to teach him sign language as a way of communicating with the outside world. Early intervention is important because the sooner they begin working with him the and showing you and your husband ways to communicate, create a schedule and begin your journey to hopefully calming life down for you. Good Luck!!
