An interesting thing happened today. I was watching the news with my autistic son and the sport was on there was alot of olympic stuff on and my son was asking me about the different sports and what was the olympic sports etc. He seemed interested so I asked him if he would like to go and he immediately said "No, there are too many people" and I asked him if he would like to watch it on TV and he replied " Yes, it is much safer!". Just thought that was a different reason why TV maybe attractive to an autistic person - I'm no expert just a mum(by the way he can take TV or leave it).
