The pressure of the holidays

My girl like many toddlers is tv/iPhone/iPad obsessed. Getting her to focus on anything else is difficult

It’s difficult to know where her toddler behaviour and ends and her autism starts. Is she strumming while she plays the same games over and over or just numbing her brain? I’m careful to chose games with a learning aspect including music, drawing and Montessori apps for the iPad.

As well as a bit of sand play and some less successful playdough which I posted about previously. Anyway it’s back to gymfants tomorrow hurrah so I can breath a sigh of relief knowing at least part of her day is being filled positively.
