I have seven grandsons, Andrew is very special as he is severely challenged by autism. He loves me but cannot say it.

Oh yes, we call it early child autism. He can not say, that he loves you BUT he can show it. This is the honest and direct varient to say it.

Thank you for your kind comments Markus.
He does small things like take my hand to open a door or change an activity. He is now 8 and verbal communication does not happen. Swimming is his favorite thing and he is a dolphin in water.
That's as much as I wish to discuss for the moment.

Does your grandchild has therapy? There exists a communication system which is called PECS (Picture Enhanced Communication System). Perhaps you can read something about this in internet. Its to hard for me to explain it in english.

Thank you again for comment Marcus.
Yes he has therapy and goes to a special school which fortunately the family can afford. He is making good progress it as you know a slow process and increments are sometimes very small.
