Gift Ideas for My Autistic Nephew?

Posted by   + Show Post

I am drawing a blank on what to get my nephew.  He is Autistic, only speaks by repeating.  He is 8 years old and he loves music and strings.  I was trying to find that 'ribbon dance thing'  I am not sure what it is called.  I want something that he will actually play with.  He doesn't play with much.  He is the only one that I have not got anything for yet and after him I am done Christmas shopping.

Any ideas??  Thank you.

Just ask the parents.  When my 5 yo ASD DS was younger,he would get totally caught up in toys that lit up or made noises or music.  We could not reach him!  So I would say to family do not buy him talking beeping flashing toys.The parents will know what is a no no and what is a good gift.

Does he have a color beaded abacus? Children with autism sometimes like patterns. The abacus could provide an outlet for pattern or order. Might work as a self soothing toy.
Have you asked mom?
