My two yo so with autism pretends he is a puppy the only way I get him to listen to me is to speak to him and treat him like a puppy. Saying things like good boy and sit or lay. He pants and barkes eats like a puppy and licks for kisses. Is this normal or should I be worried? ... is autism is not that bad its pretty mild but he is adhd also.
It is typical but don't encourage it. My daughter thought she was a duck. She had an outright meltdown in the grocery store when I told her she was a little girl and she insisted she was a duck. Now she is 14 and knows she is not a duck lol.
My neice was a horse for about a week during Summer, skipping around and winnying. When I saw her at Christmas she was a puppy eating "dog food" (cheerios) from a bowl on the floor. Last time I talked to my SIL school was more important, and my neice is wearing glasses with no glass in them because she is a teacher now. She is 6 and has no autism, but she was a preemie.
