So this visit, Nyx wanted to colour. I explained to my sister that we are working on getting kiddo to take turns, so she learns to wait instead of just grabbing what she wants. They coloured for close to an hour, and after each crayon was selected and used, Nyx lined them up very neatly on the table. 51 crayons.
I know that some ASD kids have these little quirky habits, but this really astounded me. First, that she had the attention span to do one activity for such a long time, and second, that she was so focused and intent on arranging the crayons just so after she finished with them. Astounding.
