Are Your Kids In Any Extra Activities? Which One If So

Are Your Kids In Any Extra Activities? Which One If So

I am looking to put my son in something fun he sees his sister go to gymnastics and I feel sad. He is non verbal and I have no idea what to put him in other than swim classes.

I am afraid people will not understand him or watch him either.

We are in a similar position as my son has tried soccer (huge fail), gymnastics (another fail) and swimming. He LOVES swimming and I think it's because it's a singular sport, whereas the others are more group oriented and can involve physical contact from others. Our son finds swimming to be soothing and I think it's because it provides pressure, blocks out/muffles sounds and the motion in water is fluid and calming.

His other favorite past time is art. Maybe your son would find a way of communication through drawing, painting or even music?
