I find it really interesting when I notice a behaviour which is so obviously autistic but which could be overlooked. Last night my daughter and I went to the theater, she loves to see live singing and dancing but finds the whole 'crowd' experience pretty difficult. During the interval we got an ice cream and I found a table in the corner of a quiet bar area. I suggested she sat down while I went to get a drink. Rather than sit in a chair with her back to the wall where she could see everybody she chose to sit looking at the wall with her back to the door/everybody. Hey, Netbuddy Team, could you start a kind of dictionary of Autistic behaviours. I think I'd call this 'minimising sensory input strategy'.
