I’ve been exchanging emails with a mother of an autistic child. Her name is Penny, and she has a blog of her own, about how she tries to teach her autistic daughter. The technique she is using seems to work – her daughter, now 11, is slowly catching up with other more “normal” kids, in terms of academic skills.
My son’s teacher sent home a clipping from the newspaper, with the headline “Screens Damage Young: Expert”. According to the article, a UK psychologist “is demanding” that computer screens not be used in the education of kids under 9.
