DS has five therapists and also attends an autism school 2-3 days a week.
Here is my question:
My son is overly obsessed with my car. Anywhere we go, he will have to touch it, or run to it, or plays in it. It is to the point where I can't even take him to ANY park because he just wants to be near my car (or my husband's) and won't play at the park.
Today I was over at my good friend's house (who knows about Gabe's issues) and my DS was of course avoiding her DS (for no reason...we are working on socializing with peers) but he kept trying to stand by the front door (so he could go to the car). It was to the point where he was frustrating and hitting and trying to pinch my friend's DS.
It is also getting to the point where we can't take him anywhere because he throws a huge tantrum because he doesn't want to go inside any building.
The only time he does not do this is when I take him to school (he LOVES it there) although he does run back to the car and touch it and point with it.
Just needing some feedback on how to deal with this!
I should add we try redirecting but it almost impossible to redirect him when it comes to the car...
