Thank-you to both of you for responding to my question. What was the outcome of using traditional fluency therapy for case C4? C4's cognitive skills were within normal limits, so would you predict a similar therapy approach to work with a child diagnosed with autism, but with cognitive delays? Also when you discussed case C3 you mentioned using a floortime approach with individuals with PDD-NOS. Exactly what is this approach? Thanks for your time!
