Emmett’s having such a very hard time right now

[igp-video src=”” poster=”https://www.theautismdad.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/05/13259473_1371958792820430_1638741399_n.jpg” size=”large”]
Emmett's having such a very hard time right now 😕 It's so easy to forget that just because a child with Autism can speak, doesn't mean they have the ability to express themselves. Emmett has a very, very advanced vocabulary but very, very limited expressive language skills. On days like today where it feels like we're living from one meltdown to the next, I'm reminded of this challenge. My sweet Emmett is not gifted in the ways of expressing his feelings or frustrations with words and indoor voices. Asking him what's wrong will not provide me with anything that can help me better understand what's bothering him. I instead have to follow the breadcrumb trail of behavioral changes and try and decode them.
