Making Our Way: AutismThe Dionne Family Clip | 4m 35s 17-year-old Ben Dionne has made a lot of progress in the years since he was first diagnosed with Autism. Ben is non-verbal, meaning he doesn't have the ability to vocalize his needs. For the non-verbal child with Autism, other means of communication such as signing, or an augmentative communication device is needed to communicate.
