Milton was recently interviewed in Second Life at SL-Labs by CNN. We spoke in depth about the utility of virtual worlds for helping people with Autism. I'd be interested in feedback from people with Autism and their carers about how they feel Virtual Communities can be of value to them.
The original video is here and the video can be viewed below.
You can also find a related CNN report on an initiative by David Savill (Avatar Dave Sparrow), a person with Autism, on 'Naughty Auties' a space specifically designed for people with Autism in Second Life. The report is here.
