Xavier is diagnosed with Autsim, ADHD- combined type, Apraxia of speech, receptive-expressive language disorder.

Xavier is a very smart and loving 4 year old with autism. Xavier loves to go to the park with his cousins and go to the aquarium for short times. He is such a water child that we are looking into swim classes for him. When my son was diagnosed with autism I begun fighting for his voice until he found his own. It was been a long 2 years of trying to find the right services, schools, and therapy for him. we are finally starting to see some progress with his communication ( nonverbal) recently. A speech device would greatly help him become more independent and hopefully decrease some behaviors that come with not being able to express himself to others.
