The Computer as Treatment



"Practicing social interaction in a safe, non-threatening, gaming environment helps people reduce anxiety and gain the confidence and skills they need to attempt more social interactions in their daily lives." http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2014/10/29/autism-video-games_n_6056634.html Social media does this.

Some neuroscientists are tackling teaching cognitive skills though games. I found one to be substantially helpful with my vision. It clearly stands out in many areas. http://www.brainhq.com/world-class-science/information-researchers

Different therapy videos can be found on the internet. Occupational, Physical, and Speech therapy videos are there.
 

 
Videos aren't for everyone, but they can be a useful tool.
 
 
The exam must still be done in person, but this new tool of the computer gives you options in treatment. This last person is successfully using her computer to provide therapy.


The true reason this Survivor posts videos! I promise!
