Do you want to help your child on the autism spectrum to verbally communicate with you and others?


You've picked up the right book.


The Autism Language Launcher gives you something totally new: a step-by-step guide that ignites language lift-off by using methods such as tapping into your child's innate

intelligence, going with your child instead of against your child and providing techniques that work with adults on the spectrum.


Written for parents, relatives, professionals, educators, or caregivers of a child or adult who is not yet verbal, making some sounds, using some words, speaking in single words,

or using two-word phrases, this book uses the author's decades of experience with children and adults on the spectrum.


Kate also demonstrates how to effectively address your child's echolalia, repetitious language, and repetitive questions in a way that your child will find supportive, bonding, and even joyful. Ultimately, this book shows you how to make language happen.

Kate Wilde has done it again! In a clear and concise manner, her new book The Autism Language Launcher lays out how speech can become a very real possibility for any currently non-verbal child or adult with autism. In her book, Kate offers not only buckets of hope (backed up with so many wonderful examples) to support families on this journey to spoken language, but also concrete techniques that encourage success and help build increased relationship with our children. I adore Kate, I adore this book and I can't wait to hand it out to all my families who wish for more verbal communication with their children. Mark my words, The Autism Language Launcher is a game changer!
