Autism Symptoms – Play Activities 
Posted Date

The mutilation of social relations and communication skills in children with autism symptoms becomes more clear through play behavior. While the lack of social interaction and speech can occasionally be missed in the home surroundings (not all children vocalize and interact at the similar level at similar age), poor relations with other kids of a similar age is a important sign of potential autism.

Due to the lack of social consciousness, the autistic child might appear to rather playing alone. The affinity of the autistic to meeting point on an object, for instance, may be clear in a simple activity like playing with a toy truck. While it appears that the child is certainly playing with the truck, in reality he might be more interested in the turning of its wheels. Indeed, the more or less characteristic ritualistic play of the autistic child does not let for natural interactive play, as a change in routine may cause an unsuitable outburst.

The lack of spontaneity also preclude any role-playing or “pretending” type of play relating other children. Also, the child with autism who is prone to anger tantrums may find it very hard to interrelate with other children, who may avoid him because of it. In addition, the extra stimulation of having others about may overcome the child, who may be extra sensitive to noise.

Unsuitable attachments to objects may also preclude sharing toys with other children. His inability or reluctance to make eye contact with others may be disturbing enough to cause other children to avoid him, as is the lack of the capability to smile spontaneously.

Lacking an attention in the activities of others’ emotion and activities, the child with autism misses out on the feelings of enjoyment derived from imaginative social play. Moreover, play is an vital means of learning about the world around him and the autistic child misses out on these life education.
