#Autism and @MineCraft: A match made in heaven

      5 Comments on #Autism and @MineCraft: A match made in heaven


Elliott and I have been playing MineCraft on Android for awhile now.  However, he just discovered that it’s on the xbox 360 as well.

I used the very last of my Microsoft points to grab it off of xbox live.

Elliott is thrilled.

MineCraft is a great game that anyone can play.  It encourages use of his imagination and fosters creativity.  He essentially get a blank pallet and can create anything his amazing mind can think up.



I would recommend this game to anyone with a child. More importantly, I would recommend MineCraft to anyone with an autistic child that likes games and enjoys creating things.

After hearing one of my students talk about minecraft repeatedly I did a little research, and as creative as it is I don’t know if this is what autistic kids should be using. They need to develop social skills and this game puts them in a world by themselves trying to survive… which is pretty much what I imagine reality to be like for them as it is. There is something to be said for having a game where you feel comfortable being yourself, but if you want your child to have any real opportunities at having a social life… Read more »
