Watching Videos in Different Languages – Autism
There are a couple things going on here.
First, Hank enjoys YouTube videos in multiple languages, he constantly has foreign languages playing on his iPad. (How he rabbit-holes to these videos is still a mystery to me.)
Hank really enjoys music with video clips in different languages. I’m still boggled as to why that is, if anyone knows please comment and let me know your thoughts!
Second, Hank is particularly rigid about his nails and any rough edges. I use to have to cut his nails in his sleep because it was too much of a sensory overload for him to handle. We have happily come a long way since then.
This video is from quite awhile ago but it is accurate of his rigidity to smooth nails to this day. He will typically come to me and say “mommy cut” pointing to a nail to show me a spot (I can barely see) that is bothering him.
I use the clippers to cut the rough edge off, but on this day he wasn’t satisfied with the trim I gave him and was VERY persistent “mommy cut, mommy cut…..” you get the picture, so I took a nail file and smoothed out the edge. This is now a regular occurrence in our house. Hank loves to file and smooth his nails.
