Yes. it IS a mystery! Communication with the severe Autistic is a challenge... One of the people I support has only got about 4 different sounds, to tell people how he feels, what he wants to do, what he wants to eat/drink...

Most people don't bother to 'ask' him, and he's happy to get whatever he's offered...

I'm currently doing a communication board for him, in order for him to have some choices... This mostly envolves around food and drink.
