Nonverbal autistic children have a secret world inside them; a world which is beyond your wildest dream; remarkable, astonishing, and startling. They do not share their world, and we do not observe it too.

1 – Brain struggles to connect thoughts to words …

This is the first secret. Nonverbal autistic children are provide to fabricate words and phrases; they face difficulties using spoken language to describe their feelings. In a way, these children want to sing, but they do not understand how to speak. And, consequentially, this communication deficiency waters down their confidence, prevails them from keeping friends, and leads them to social isolation.

However, on the flip side, 'Autism Speaks' chief science officer, Geraldine Dowson, PhD, instigates the parents of nonverbal autistic children with his discoveries. According to him, “Language-delayed children have the ability to cultivate speech in elementary school, or even as teenagers.” Apart from this, Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center at Harvard Medical School has established a new therapy to help nonverbal autistic children learn to speak. The two month therapy prompts areas of the brain by combining singing with motor activities; it helps nonverbal children with autism to fabricate words and communicate comfortably.

2 – Master in Reading Slight Differences in Actions …

Nonverbal autistic children can be fragile in observing expressions, but the truth is, they are the maestros of observing the slightest differences in actions. Their system of observing constrain them to learn pattern-recognition skills which abet them to predict human behavior and sense the slightest details that general people miss. The authenticity of their prediction sometimes stuns their own parents too.

These kids know how to adjust to their surroundings and decode the actions by intuitions. Your slightest change in the pattern, sound, and action provide them hundreds of clues to read your mind. For example, they already know when you are going to drink water, get the car keys, or serve them dinner.

3 – Anything Can Easily Overwhelm …

The absence of filters in the mind can make any specific thing overwhelming for nonverbal autistic children. Any person, place, or thing can heighten the feelings of panic and make them instantly unwell. Terrified emotions also emerge and invite dreadful consequences.

Simple and small things create more impact on these children. For example, color of wall, movement of chair, smell of food, and the tone of voice. According to children with autism, these types of small things send much information and release much more energy than we can acknowledge.

4 – Unable To Judge Your Expectations …

Kids with autism, especially nonverbal, are disconnected from speech and language. They do not exactly know how to identify feelings on the faces and read the hidden message of communication. This thing makes them unable to judge your expectations. Some kids allege that they can read the emotions of others, but they do it without thinking in language; they have their own means of nonverbal communication.

In addition, most autistic kids do not know how to put feelings on their own faces while conveying their messages. In nonverbal autism, the brain places busy to understand what someone else is saying and assemble what to say next. When someone emits complicated emotions, their minds fluster. They understand something is going on, but they do not get what exactly it is. Insufficient knowledge does not let them read all kinds of emotions. Plus, excessive consideration makes them slow learners and do not permit them to take the final decision.

5 – Imitate And Feel Your Emotions …

Nonverbal autistic kids can not read your emotions, but they have the amazing ability to imitate and feel your emotions. Many parents have stated that their kids perceive their emotions and act out appropriately; if they are agitated, their children are agitated too; if they are happy, their children are happy too. This amazing discovery can certainly help the parents and teachers to control the emotions of these children.

The actual problem is, when these kids imitate your emotions, they are unable to separate their own emotions from yours. They sometimes feel that something is out of context, and this feeling often puzzles them. However, some nonverbal autistic teenagers learn to manage with these feelings by age. They use their ability to separate their emotions, understand the emotions of others and act out accordingly.

6 – Rely On Intuition …

Nonverbal kids with autism are intuitive thinkers. They develop a unique method to examine the situations and reject what's available on the surface. For them, a mind is very limited, but intuition is limitless. Intuition helps to see with the soul and determines which the best road to follow is.

Different types of thinking patterns oblige these kids to rely on intuition. Their subconscious minds pick up concrete detail and form a truthful picture which is mostly without errors. We non-autistic people also use intuition, but we are more much more on what's available on the surface. We use our intuitions only during dangerous situations, critical decisions, and unpredictable challenges. On the flip side, autistic kids use the highest form of intuition, in a higher consciousness mode, almost all the time and operate accordingly.

7 – Get Stuck in The Moment …

The attention of these kids gets stuck in the moment. Extreme details of the objects do not let them disengage from the activity. They are helpless and clueless; they have no idea how to shift their attention from one thing to another. This is the reason why these kids spend so much time watching TV and playing with the same object again and again. In addition, several studies have proved that most nonverbal autistic children exhibit a general impairment in shifting attention ability, and this thing affects their typical development.
