I think my brain is fried so I haven't been able to come up with a solution.
My 5 year old has mild autism, so his speech is around 2.5 to 3 years old.
He likes physical play; chase, tickle, restle, play ball.
When we are out and about, it is fine, he is not watching cartoons (unless we go to the bank, he is allowed to watch on the iPad while I do what I need to do)
But when we are at home he gravitates to watching DVDs on the TV (I don't have cable, by choice) or watch cartoon on the iPad. Unless I am willing to chase him or tickle him.
He lately doenst want to playdoh or blocks/ He has never been into crafts. he dislikes board games or workbooks, coloring will not last more than 5 minutes, same with reading.
He refuses to help me cook or anything else. It is either run or TV
My problem is that i cannot physically chase him all the time we are home so he stays out of the iPad or TV.
Any ideas?, I am beyond tired and feeling I cannot let him watch so many cartoons
