Quinn & his ducks

We thought the way he was always lining up toys was just a quirky thing he liked to do... but later realized it was a very strong indicator that he had autism.


Note: Someone pointed out that he has the ducks positioned in a Fibonacci sequence here -- 1, 1, 2, 3. After looking at some other photos, we saw that he has used various types of non-random patterns with his stacking, aligning and drawing.

    He's a pattern-thinker all right!

    what a cute picture, i didnt notice until you put the posting about Fibonacci sequence, but my son frequently does the same thing, if i hand him various things he will rearrange them as i hand them to him. very awesome! Autistic kids are very special! :)
