From Our Community: Lining up toys and playing puzzle on tab by Sean (ASD symptoms)
 
Made by: Vanessya L.
 
This Vid was edited a few months ago (on July, 2012). The vid shows that Sean's obsession in lining up objects. He did it everyday. A few months ago, he arranged objects with the same shapes and colors. But now, there's a little bit of changes, he arranges objects from small shapes to big shapes. ;) Sean loves puzzling games, he is good at it. In this vid also shows he plays puzzle games on his tablet. Check it out!! Thanks for watching.
