My almost 3 year old son is the same way. He loves fans and constantly talks about them and wants to watch videos of them. We have had several people comment on how much he likes fans. We also go to Lowes a lot, tell stories about fans before bed, go on walks and look at fans, etc. His social skills are typical for a 3 year old and his speech is well developed. But OCD runs in both sides of the family. And he has always had signs of ADHD in my opinion. Can you tell me what other signs your son had? We were trying to get him tested but they won't do it until after his well-child visit in a couple months. Thanks for any help!View Thread
I am so glad I found this! My son is the same exact way. He is almost 3. He loves videos of fans, going to Lowes, looking at anything with a "fan" like ACs or helicopters, and we have to tell him "fan" stories every night before bed. OCD runs in our family. Can you tell me what other signs your son had of OCD and ADHD? We were getting him evaluated, but they wouldn't accept him unless he had a well-child visit (instead of the one we went to randomly since we were worried about him) which he is due for in 2 months. Two months is a long time for me wait. Do you have any signs I should look for? Naturally, I worry that he has the disorders I have looked up. He has typical behavior is social situations, but he does seem to have idiosyncrasies that don't seem typical. But he is my oldest so I don't know for sure! I am going crazy. Thanks for any help in advance.View Thread
