Its very common for children with autism to have obsessions.
They tend to be things like trains, Thomas the Tank Engine, cars, Mickey Mouse, aeroplanes......
But no, not DS!
DS's obsession is washing machines!
He fell in love with them at a very young age and it has been his obsession ..like forever!
He loves the spin the most and he loves the drone noise it makes
I feel this is important to DS therefore Ive never discouraged it, as quoted from the National Autistic Society:
Obsessions, repetitive behaviour and routines can be a source of
enjoyment for people with an autism
spectrum disorder (ASD), and a way to cope with everyday life.
Wonder if this will stay with him up to a teenager.....suppose theres a thin line between obsessions and slave labour is'nt there?? Ha!
