We live a few hour's away I know the feeling of what to do after school and also how hard it is to try to get him to do new things ,then if you try the same thing he wants walk to the same place, that is why we had to stop walking ti foster freeze new mommy's take note on this because now we don't go fo walk es there any long because he always wants milkshakes and F.F so I can relate with you on that if I knew before we started walking there I would have made it more of a habit walking him to the school were there is basketball hoops for him to play.. We do have a pool for kyle which really helps in the summer and the trampoline in the back yard , I bet living in the city you might not have as big of back yards as we do in the valley . Also in his room we buy the bouncy ball's for him to sit on to watch  his video's wish I had more info for ya good luck and just to know I feel  ya!!!!!!

Bless you, You are not alone..My son is non-verbal autistic at 10yrs old...He is very smart and I can see and I pray everyday for recovery from Autism...Autism is very repetitive. I know all about doing the same things, the same, all the time. I just learned to change things up..Making excuses like, "oh K-mart's closed today" on a saturday afternoon....I try and explain alot to my son, like "We can't go that way today, maybe tomorrow...I know and feel your pain...As for exercise try everything, treadmill, bicycles, flying a kite...My son also uses a huge exercise ball while watching t.v...I swear sometimes I think he's gonna smack his head into the ceiling...No, he's really awesome to watch! He has never fallen off his huge exercise ball. I call it his best friend...Also, my son plays alot with electronic games, works t.v. and vcr like professional. He also goes on line and surfs the net completely on his own...Im not even in the room...I wish you and your family well...you rock

Is there a Special Olympics chapter in your area - they have a lot of physical based activities for little or no cost for children and adults with special needs.

 

Hope this helps...
