Rémi loves watching trains on YouTube.  But since he can't use the mouse, he's always pulling me by the hand towards the computer and pointing at the next video he wants to watch.  I thought I'd take the opportunity to teach him a bit of language:

Me:  "What do you want?"

Ré:   "Train"

Me:  "I want..."

Ré:   "I want…"

Me:  "...a train…"

Ré:   "...a train…"

Me:  "...on…"

Ré:   "...on…"

Me:  "YouTube."

Ré:   "Me Tube!"

I thought autistic kids at his stage only echoed stuff!  Should I be proud that he's making the same silly mistakes as regular kids?

  1. Yes. That's awesome. "Me Tube" makes perfect sense. However, if uttered by an adult male at the workplace, it may get you summoned to the Human Resource Director.
