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?

Title: Role Playing and autism

Comments: I've been researching the topic of using role playing games to help teach communication and collaboration skills in junior high age students on the spectrum. My son, who is on the spectrum, has written a game to do just that. In conjunction with his therapist, they have beta tested the game now in groups of junior high students.
The students are asking for more nights/week and the parents are reporting huge changes for their child's self esteem and ability to cope and make friends at their respective schools.
These kids are going the extra mile to make sure to be at their game night! One young man who had his driver's permit but had been terribly frightened to drive even got behind the wheel when his mom who had had knee surgery earlier that day reported to her son that she could not drive him to the group. He wanted to be there so badly, that he actually did the driving. His mother was thrilled!
Another student had had an outpatient surgery one day and had no voice, yet he begged his mom to go to class that night and be with his role-playing friends.
We're hoping to get his launched in the next year!
