Helping Your Autistic Child Develop a Healthy Relationship with Screens

I'm Dr. Naomi Fisher, I'm a clinical psychologist, and I specialize in autism, trauma, and alternatives in school, alternative ways to learn, and I've written two books about that.

One of the things I noticed very quickly when I had my own children, and probably you've noticed too, is that screens are really one of the bogeymen of our age.

They're one of the things that parents in particular are really scared of, and they're also something which you're surrounded with messages about, about how you should be behaving as a good parent around screens.

Yet the harder parents try to put limits in place, the more  determined their children are to hold on.  It can easily become a family  flashpoint.

In this course I talk about the screen time paradox.  I will describe the attraction that autistic children have  for screens, and how parents may be inadvertently making the situation  worse. I talk about why screens are important for many autistic  children, and how parents can help them to develop a healthy long term  relationship with technology.  I discuss how you know when things  are going wrong, and when to step in.
