: but my boy has improved in his interaction skills, his attention span and his willingness to play with other people by playing with Playstation and Nintendo 64. He's really gotten quite good at many of the games, and even though his non-verbal autism prevents us from clearly explaing the rules and strategies to some of the more complex games, he's picked up a good bit by watching his brother and myself. He can beat my oldest daughter at some of the games, and she's 13 (he's only 6).
My son is 16yr. and has played with video games for quite some time. He is really good, and I think it is good for eye/hand cordination. Also he has played with many a NT children and shows them the correct buttons to push to help them out, even though he still wins. Angie
