In The Autism World, Lately


 Spencer insists on changing the colors on his TV to pink.
Why?  I have no idea.  None at all.  lol....
But if we change it to normal, he changes it right back!
I guess since it's his, he can watch it how he pleases.
But he's been banned from touching the color settings on our TV!

  7. Maybe he likes to change it to pink because its something he can control. Just guessing. But you're smart to pick your battles.

  15. Hard to guess why pink if not even you do not know ... but as long as it makes him happy why not? Good that the boys have their own tv I do understand you still want multicoloured pictures on the screen :-) you are a great great Mom Betsy!

  17. Now I kind of want to change my TV to pink. That sounds like such a fun way to watch to TV. Well, unless if Chris Hemsworth is on the screen. Pink won't do him justice. haha

  18. Its very interesting that he likes to watch his TV in the pink color! My autistic son hasnt found the settings to change the color on his tv yet... =) ( he does have to have his DVD movie at just ..the .."right spot" before he turns off his TV before...we leave to go anywhere )

  20. I think that's fascinating! Why not pink...we all grew up basically watching gray TV, didn't we!

  21. Some colors turn out to be black and white in the eyes of some people. I used to have a monitor that I could change the color from whatever was normal to any other color. Interesting that was one would think would turn out to be white ended up black and so on.

  22. Does Spencer seem to like pink for anything else? How long has this been going on? Do Harry and Alex ever watch the same shows with Spencer, and if so, does it ever get to be a problem over the color? Fascinating!

    1. He doesn't seem to like pink for anything else! Harry and Alex don't seem to have a preference but they don't complain when Spencer does this, either...they all watch it like it's perfectly normal. Isn't that something?
