Article summary (posted Aug 26, 2010):


Social computer games may someday be a good intervention for adolescents with autism.

Play therapy is often used to treat children with autism, but many adolescents feel themselves to be too old for play therapy. This short paper describes the use of certain types of video games as an intervention for people with autism. The author describes the field of social physics as a way of having computers see the emotions of the player. The author suggests that such video game structures could mimic the real social world.
