Answering questions

by jacki

Hi, I have a 19 year old autistic son who has great difficulty answering questions. He also mixes pronouns (I,you) although if you tell him to correct himself he knows how. He says that when he is asked a question, or generally, his head is full of pictures and they do not have words attached.
Do you have any suggestions as to help to get a person who thinks in pictures language flowing?
Thank you-
