Snapshots of Autism

While Mikan certainly has made many improvements in basic socialization skills, his perseverations continue.  He can be persuaded to participate in different activities, but, when left to his own devices, he will draw planets, line up balls that he labels as planets, or watch solar system videos on YouTube all day long.  Some people may think this is typical kid behavior (having a particularly narrow interest for a period of time, but his behaviors aren't normal.  It is different.  But that's just another thing we love about him.
