Thanks God that your grandson is speaking now. But as a whole autism is very common and is not at all a disease to be neglected. You must see that your grandson is always supervised by a reputed physician expert in the field.

When I saw this topic that's what I was going to say. One of my cousins had autism and I remember he wasn't saying any words so people got worried. He ended up going to speech therapy too and it helped him out.
