Fixations/Limited Interests

Children and youth with fixations and limited interests are characterized by recurrent, persistent ideas, thoughts, images or impulses that invade consciousness and are experienced as senseless, anxiety provoking or repugnant; or repetitive and ritualistic behavior that is not an end in itself but designed, in the mind of the individual, to help bring about or prevent some future event or situation. Young children often exhibit a restricted or limited range of interests.
