EXACTLY why we individualize our behavior analytic treatments. never assume anything - it's a spectrum disorder for a reason!
Just bc they can talk to you doesn't mean they can't understand every thing you are saying right in front of them. Please don't be cruel. Feelings can b hurt even though they can't communicate it to you. Aggression is a communicator that some thing is wrong!!!!!!
Absolutely. Not being able to speak is not the same as not being able to understand what people say, either. People who study language disabilities distinguish "expressive language" (your ability to use language to express yourself) and "receptive" language (your ability to understand what other people say).
