6.Limited imagination and play:
Limited imagination and play is a common symptom in children with autism. They may struggle with engaging in imaginative play or understanding the concept of make-believe. They may prefer to engage in repetitive or solitary activities rather than interactive or imaginative play. This can limit their ability to understand and express their emotions, and can make it difficult for them to understand social interactions.
Children with autism may not have the capacity to understand or engage in pretend play. They may not be able to use objects in creative ways, such as using a block as a telephone. They may also have difficulty understanding the emotions and actions of characters in make-believe scenarios.
They may also prefer to engage in solitary or repetitive activities such as lining up objects or spinning a toy, instead of interactive play with other children or adults. This can make it difficult for them to understand social interactions and make friends.
