Video Summary

Children with autism will sometimes do things to get sensory input. Rather than looking through and sharing a picture book with his father, a typical behavior for toddlers, Christian K. (2 years 9 months) quickly flips through the pages of a children's book while vocalizing to himself, a behavior likely related to his sensory interest in the sight of the flipping pages and images, rather than a true interest or understanding of the story.
