People with Autism have difficulty manipulating thoughts in an imaginative way. They may become unduly upset by any changes in their known pattern of life or routine. They may have a tendency towards repetitive actions within a restrictive range, such as body rocking, hand or arm flapping.
They do not usually play with toys conventionally; they may watch one part of it or do the same thing to it for long periods. Imaginative play is limited, especially if other children are involved, although some children can imitate something they have seen. They may not see danger in things like crossing the road or jumping from a window.
