Don't Miss My Interview on the Differently Wired Podcast!

Managing free time for children diagnosed with Autism and/or ADHD can be tough and confusing. Holly Blanc Moses, of the Wired Differently Podcast, and I dive in and chat about two different play patterns that I have noticed in my work with families. I previously wrote about this idea in a blog post last year. For more info, you can read that blog post HERE.

The Never Leaves You Alone Player

Has trouble playing alone

Maybe hyperactive and/or have a short attention span

Says, "I'm bored!" and "There's nothing to do!"

Doesn't want to be alone

Maybe anxious

The Blissful Solo Player

Happy to play alone

Plays with a highly preferred toy or activity for long periods of time

May resist social interaction

May hyperfocus

We discuss how to:

Understand and manage time

Increase time playing alone and playing with others

Decrease anxiety related to free time

Improve parent-child interactions
