This is more of a question really but also a sharing of my experience.
Do any of your kids collect. Little treasures?
I ask because of our 3 boys on the Autism Spectrum, both Gavin and Elliott have a history of collecting.
Well actually, in Gavin’s case, it’s more like hoarding. Gavin will hoard all the Lego’s, Hot Wheels and stuffed animals.
In Elliott’s case, he collects these little treasures.
These little treasures are usually, odd little trinkets that have broken off of other toys.
From what I understand, this is a way of him exerting control over his life, and to be completely honest, he has very little control over his life otherwise.
I was just wondering if anyone else sees this type of behavior? He’s not stealing or anything like that. These are just small and otherwise unwanted little things.
I appreciate any and all feedback… 🙂
