Customer Question

Hi,My son has just been assessed and it has been indicated to us that he seems Autistic, though borderline. A formal report is still to come through, however, I have started researching the condition online extensively.He will turn 4 come the next 15 days.He has limited speech(singlewords, with a lot of imitation, with an understanding of about 25% of the ones that he imitates), good gross motor skills, good eye contact, good pointing/gesturing, lots of expressions, does not have sensitivity to light or sounds and actually dances to loud songs, is very social.His pain areas are : Speech, throwing temper tantrums at times due to the limited speech, intellectual delay due to speech.I just want to check is starting ABA and its efficacy now too late ? Will his speech return to normal ? I am happy to spend as much money as needed with his development, so engaging the best therapists shouldn't be an issue.A quick answer would be extremely appreciated.Thanks.
