Age Appropriate Behaviour

I try to encourage age appropriate behaviour wherever possible with my son, who has developmental delay and learning disability due to Down’s Syndrome, as all the professionals advise. When it comes to toys, books and TV programs, he simply isn’t interested in the kind of things most eight year old boys are into. Since play and leisure time is supposed to primarily be about fun, should I try to push age appropriate things onto him, or just relax and let him have the things he enjoys?
