Hi there, my child is 4 years old. He is a boy and is suffering from autism. He babbles and only says words like “mum mum,” “go go.” Could you tell me whether there are any devices that will help him speak properly?

My grandson who is 13 years old has been using an iPad for about two years. Now he has gotten so into it, especially YouTube, that he gets over-stimulated to the point where he cannot relax. We are looking for a behavior program but we live in a rural area with few services.
