television

If you're a parent or teacher, then more than likely, you probably battle with yourself whether or not to let a person with autism watch television.  They really like it and it gives you a break. Try to make the videos interactive.  A lot of children's or exercise videos speak to the watcher and ask them to join them.  Get them to dance to the music, etc.  

Watch out for Barney videos.  For some reason autistic children seem to really get stuck on them.  I know I've heard several mothers say their child was stuck on this show and so was my son.  I don't know if it's the age at which the "autism set's in" or what.  When all they want to do is watch TV, watch out.  Barney's a good dinosaur, it's not his fault, but...

Consider the Leap Videos.  They are fairly new and only on DVD, thus far.  The Letter Factory goes through each letter of the alphabet and has a song for each one.  It is done very professionally and goes along with a book that goes in with the Leap Pad (of course, sold separately).

DVD's for the autistic as well as those studying it can be found at:
