My son is growing up in a community with several playgrounds to choose from and lots of trees to climb.  He has autism and I am encouraging him to climb trees for gross motor skills development.  He is not yet interested in having playmates and I rarely see children here climb the trees so he always does it alone.  Most of the time he's not sure which branch to cling to and which branch to step on, but he kept on trying and he does not whine.  I guess he is also having fun.
