Best of  Autism & Role-playing Games RPGs for those on the Autism Spectrum. If you are autistic does being in a role-playing setting help with social skills? Does participating in online play by post methods allow a release?

Comments: It's helped me a lot. My theory of mind issues are mitigated by role playing someone with goals and wishes that differ from my own.

Comments: My daughter complained she had no sense of imagination. So I made her try 3.5 D and D (Not pathfinder) and now she writes and has a little group of friends who all sit and play a loose form of it. So I don't know if it ties in with what your trying to say but I strongly believe role playing games are very good for children in a world of touch screen and virtual reality.

Comments: I'm pretty sure I have ADD myself, had it my whole life, and still don't have a proper diagnosis. Anyways, what can those of us with friends and family on the Autism Spectrum do to help bring them out of their shells through role-playing?

Ignore oddities and welcome their participation, accept their presence and praise their willingness to try as socialization can be a big challenge. If social is not possible I have created a safe online place for Role-playing Games to happen, even Solo play so no Dungeon Master is needed. It allows anyone to carefully write and express themselves asynchronously in character. See an example:

Comments: I have shared this and similar articles with my wife. Our oldest son is on the spectrum and Role-playing Games have helped him get better at socializing, most definitely.

Comments: I have Asperger's Syndrome. RPG brought me out of my shell and improved my writing and reading skills. Not to mention made it possible to talk in front of people I did not know.

The psychologist I went to discuss autism related issues with when I was first diagnosed plays Dungeons & Dragons as well. I am going to try to show him this.

Comment: Well, as a gentleman who spent most of his teens and early 20's working/acting in a children's theater I can say that role playing definitely helps you cope with being one of the world's somewhat "Roughly chiseled" individuals.

I say this not as a person who has been officially diagnosed as on the spectrum, but as one of those people who most certainly DID NOT fit the round hole… I was one and I knew several folks there of a similar cloth.

Play By Post games are certainly an "Arm's length" way of interacting and enriching people's lives.
