I guess my son is a spinner!! LOL
I am literally laughing so hard right now I have tears coming out of my eyes. I think my ASD 4 year old sonjust discovered spinning. He's always had his little quirks but spinning was never one of them. Well, about half an hour ago he just started spinning, wobbling, falling, getting back up, and spinning some more. That has been non-stop. His eyes have that look like he is looking periferally out the side of his eyes while doing it (does that all the time lining up his cars.) He's laughing and giggling. One of his sisters started out going 'what is he doing' but now is spinning herself thinking it is something fun to do, and she is my balance coordination problem child so can not stay on her feet for anything. Autism may not be contagious, but I guess spinning isto a room of 4 year olds! And then for the poor little sister it is like walking through a land mine of spinning siblings. She has downs and can't hear them coming and is so floppy/stumbly walking around in a perfect environment. She is just getting bumped and knocked down over and over. By the time she gets up, someone else is running into her. I seriously may need to get out the video recorder as this is just hilarious. For all of you with spinners though, seriously how do you keep them safe, and how long does this go on? I would think he'd be tired by now.
