Autism - Support Across the Spectrum Autism - Support Across the Spectrum

What is your child's favorite thing to do?  

Lately, Colin's favorite is movies.  He's been watching and rewatching Despicable Me 2 ever since he got it for Christmas.

Great idea, we'll have to do that!

Quoting MamaLauri:

Jumping so great for multi-sensory integration. My son jumpped so much we called him Tigger. Try playing catch while they are jumping for even better multi-sensory integration exercise.

Quoting amonkeymom:

My kiddo loves to jump too.  I meant to get him a new mini-trampoline for Christmas and forgot so I'll probably do that for his birthday in March.

Quoting ineedcoffeemom:

Awww .... my daughter got that movie for Christmas too! Sadly, when she sees characters in only one movie for so long it upsets her to see them in another movie because they aren't doing what they're supposed to. We've tried watching it several times but she's just not happy with it because it's different than the original. She's acted this way with all sequels ..... she eventually comes around.

Her current favorite thing to do is jumping/bouncing. Whether its on the exercise ball, her trampoline, our laps, just on the floor, jumping from tile to tile. Whatever mode she chooses, she has to be jumping at nearly all times. It's about to drive my dh insane.

I had to ground my son from the computer for reasons other than school work, or else we'd be dealing with Minecraft as well.

Quoting patnic:

Right now, Minecraft.  He could do it all day long if we let him.

Minecraft here too. If he isn't playing it, he's talking about playing it or begging to watch videos of people playing it on Youtube! We've had to make a reward system and schedule out his computer time otherwise he'd be mincrafting it up constantly :P

My 14yo will watch Smurfs 2/Equestria Girls dvds over and over again- I can hear them in my sleep!
