This might not look like much but for an autistic Doodle it speaks volumes! A lot of autistic children don't know how to play with toys or have different ways to play with them. This has been the case for the Doodle. They might obsess about spinning the wheels or opening the car doors and not play with the car as it might have been intended in an imitation type of play. So out of no where, all by himself tonight he took his little Jeep that goes with his Daddy garage and wheeled it around the house. He rolled it and for a minute he was perfectly content playing by himself. Then I interrupted him to take a couple of pictures to document this MILESTONE which through him off track and then he immediately began obsessing about opening and closing the hood of the jeep...taking it on and off and on and off and on and off.

Baby steps.
