- The Child with Autism
Most infants and young children are very social creatures who need and want contact with others to thrive and grow. They smile, cuddle, laugh, and respond eagerly to games like "peek-a-boo" or hide-and-seek. Occasionally, however, a child does not interact in this expected manner. Instead, the child seems to exist in his or her own world, a place characterized by repetitive routines, odd and peculiar behaviors, problems in communication, and a total lack of social awareness or interest in others. These are characteristics of a developmental disorder called autism.

Videos capture their interest by utilizing a desired activity that can enhance the achievement of goals and objectives. Desired skills can be learned or reinforced by repeated viewings of the video, which increases the likeliness of skill retention.
