I do not agree. I think video games can be a major benefit for kids with autism. Ever since Norrin started to take an interest in video games, I have seen nothing but improvement and I want him to keep playing.
My husband, Joseph, is a big time video game player. (Like up all night playing Madden during Football season gamer.) Joseph’s like a big kid when it comes to playing video games. He will not eat sleep or think of anything else until he has conquered it. And his love of video games was something Joseph wanted to enjoy with our son, Norrin.
Norrin’s been intrigued with electronics and gaming since he was a toddler. And he’s always loved watching his dad play. As Norrin got older, video games became the way for them to connect.
