Many children on the spectrum and with developmental delays struggle to keep their strokes within lines owing to poor fine motor skills and grasps shoulder stability, lack of spatial awareness and so on. In such cases, providing an extra tactile input to the borders and lines, help them stay within lines until they develop the skills needed to master it.

Quite often, our children develop obsessions to a particular activity or routine and may exhibit narrow interests. For instance, I have heard many parents expressing concerns about their child watching the same track of music or video again and again. This may continue to exist for several months or even years. There are many reasons that are attributable to such repetitive and obsessive behaviors. Lack of ideation, anxiety, sensory preferences, mere source of pleasure or could be as simple as a way of coping up every day life.
