Non verbal and verbal autism


So my son is 5 and is autistic
He has alot of words single words and can now repeat most words I say to him or he'll try anyway.
Hes only started using functional language for example hello mummy when I come home daddy where are you going so I wouldn't class him as non verbal but he's still very limited he doesn't always understand what you say like he's starting school if I said your going to school soon have a new teacher and friends that would mean nothing to him so what do I class him as wheres the middle ground is there a name for it without going into a speech lol xx

Iv always been told non verbal is a child who can't make meaningful communication. So if the child is saying random things out of context I think maybe that still classes as non verbal. Hmmm I'd be interested to know this. If your trying to explain your sons difficulties in a nutshell I would just say like I did about my daughter and say "comprehension issues " which is understanding spoken language in my daughters case

my son has been classed as "verbal" since he started putting 3 words together. When describing his issues we have to say he has a speech and language delay with encompasses his issues with both speech and understanding.

I think the right term may be "limited verbal" since he does say some stuff but not fully verbal. My son is non verbal but the only thing he says is "bye" which comes out like "baaaa" and sometimes mama.
