Do kids with autism like to watch tv?

Do kids with autism like to watch tv?

Many do, some don't: Many children with autism love to watch tv, videos, and the like, and many become obsessed with specific shows or movies, some even memorizing dialogue and repeating it over and over. I recommend no more than 2 hours per day of screen time, which includes, tv, videos, video games, computer use, and smart phone use.

Why many older children with autism are fascinated with baby and game shows?

Why many older children with autism are fascinated with baby and game shows?

Age-appropriate shows have confusing complex language ; social interactions. Game shows have sound effects, short verbal interchange, rolling credits ; catchy music. ...Read more

However, the overlap between this and normal head growth is so large that it is not useful information as far as diagnosing a particular person. ...Read more
