Lack of Expressive Language

Video Summary

Ryan, who is four and a half years old, has autism. One of the warning signs is lack of expressive language or the ability to speak. In this clip, Ryan mumbles gibberish to himself rather than using language. The symptoms of autism are clear in both his lack of language and his tendency to be "in his own world," mumbling and laughing to himself rather than engaging with the other people in his home.
