  • My oldest (4) has ASD and tends towards being a good bit OCD as well. Walmart wants to hire him ;) We constantly redirect and have to drag him away from things. I'll be keeping an eye on the answers you get!

  • Your 3 y.o. has been diagnosed with OCD? Isn't it a little early for that? Maybe you should just tell her "No, leave it alone." and redirect her attention.
