so DS8 has ASD/ADHD/ODD and spends a lot of time playing with his NT sibling DD7 and she adores him....
When they aren’t playing together they are spending all day talking about what game they will play when they get home and play together very happily for hours on Minecraft, Lego, drawing etc But...
DD often asks DS if he will play and he says yes then after a few minutes or sometimes not at all he will say “I don’t want to play that anymore” or after a couple of minutes announce “ I’m bored I don’t want to play that anymore ” and this leaves DD in tears..
DD has voiced that she is sick of him changing his mind and he claims “it’s just how my brain works” which I think he is using now as an excuse and I normally make him figure out a solution that they’ve both happy with, normally him playing whatever game he said he would play with DD as I’m over policing this as it happens at least once or twice a day and depending on my mood I choose my battles or I don’t..
I will speak to our psychologist for a social story when we see her next but does anyone have any similar scenarios they have a solution for?
any suggestions would be appreciated, thanks in advance.
