Noah’s former SLP told me most boys with autism love the color blue and trains. Of course she threw in that most boys period love the color blue and trains, so it’s hard to know if it’s autism specific or not. Noah doesn’t seem to be on the spectrum, but boy oh boy does he love the color blue and trains!
I’ve worked with that for a number of years, and today was no exception.
We made our painter’s tape T on our floor last week for Noah to walk, and it stays removable for about two weeks. Today I dug out all Noah’s toy trains, put number stickers on each from 1-10, and let him put the train together in order using a cardboard number card to prompt him.
Next, Noah drove the train along the Letter T:
It’s just kind of a bonus that painter’s tape happens to be blue. 🙂
