  What Is Nonverbal Autism?

 

  "About 25% of people diagnosed with an autism spectrum disorder could be considered to have nonverbal autism -- yet the term "nonverbal autism" is not a part of the diagnostic criteria. In part, that's because there is no clear line between verbal and non-verbal individuals with autism. Some people have the ability to speak, but lack the ability to use language in a meaningful way. Others can't use spoken language, but are able to communicate with written or typed language, American sign language, picture cards, or digital communication devices."  -autism.about.com
