Autism- Children's favourite colours

(38 Posts)

I was doing a bit of research on colours after watching the Autistic Gardener and found a bit of research on Children's favourite colours on Autism.
My little one's favourite colour is RED and he has moderate to high autism.
I just wondered if the colour Red was a familiar colour for Children to choose on the autistic spectrum or weather it has no meaning at all?

My son loves purple

DS1 loves everything orange. DS2 doesn't have such strong preferences, but seems to be drawn to bright greens and yellows. Being a younger brother, he wears a lot of orange, anyhow grin

My DS loves red. He has probably moderate-high autism too.

My DS went through a stage of only wearing red - trousers, t-shirt, jumper, underwear, socks - everything. Now it's a particular shade of blue!

Another vote for orange here! ds1 had a particularly lovely outfit of orange t-shirt and rusty-orange trousers he loved to wear! it was hideous but at least I couldn't lose him .

Green. DD will wear the same green t shirt every single day (and for bed) if I let her. I hide it at the bottom of the laundry basket and she searches for it. She's attracted to many green things.

Red. Red is DS's 'safe' colour. If he's near red things - and ideally wearing red clothes - then he's much more likely to feel safe and be calm.
