Aspergers and tv obssessions
My son Jamie is 14 years old and has a few tv obssessions. His favourite shows are Eastenders, Holby city and casualty(hospital drama's) and also the bill (police drama). He will watch the shows and also record them at the same time. He will watch them over and over again. He also buys most of the tv guides and reads them cover to cover, picking up names of directors, actors etc. Then he'll get his laptop computer and write his own scripts. He will take his tv guides and laptop everywhere he goes. He loves the bit at the end that shows directors, lighting, make up artist etc and won't stop the video until he has all the closing credits. Does anyone else, or anyone else's child do this.
His dream job when he grows up is to become a script writer....you;d never guess eh LOL
