Does he have particular interests that he is kind of obsessive about? Could you buy him a book or two that pertains to them?

Does he like to read? Would he like a cap, printed t shirt or pair of converse shoes they have those on sale for about $30 at famous footwear.

Wow! That’s tough!

I know that the pre-teen autistic students I’ve worked with really enjoy sensory gifts. So, like a disco ball or an LED lamp that is lightbulb free. Think lava lamps or water/gel timers. As for feeling, there’s Hoberman Spheres, squishy balls (the ones with the gel spikes), and other easy puzzle feeling-toys.

Maybe museum tickets too?

@nyscpa2be:  Actually, I think lava lamps are pretty age apropriate! Kids love that stuff! My 15 year old cousin went out and bought his own a couple weeks ago from my sister’s garage sale. LOL!

Can you gift him with an experience? Take him to a science museum, they always have light bulb related exhibits.

I have a 13yo boy and he would love a lava lamp. He really wants one of those envirascape things. Or a zen garden. He loves them. My son also wants a bbx bike but that is way out of your price range…lol.

@nyscpa2be:  My Fiance is a vegan. I revolt against him alllll the time. It sounds like your sister is a bit protective. But it’s so tough to raise pre-teens with disabilities, and those early teen years are hard to begin with. Good luck, girl!

a CD? Get one that’s popular with 13 year olds. Go to Target and look at the teen top 20 cds.
