Here's the thing. Kids with ASDs typically learn and think visually, Their minds discourse in images, rather than, say, a combination of sensory intakes and verbalizations, so I need to be (uhhhg, moan...) a tad conversant in gaming.
This truth has lead me over the past year to a question. Where are all the Christian video games? WIth all the violent and gruesome material of Christianity, why must I endure watching my child learning math concepts from the dual yawnfests of precious singing frogs and Jedi Knights, or reading concepts from popular co-opted Pixar characters, hmm? I am looking for History apps of the Crusades (the Children's Cursade even, if you want to make it diminutive) or Understanding Science Concepts through the whoopass slingshot force of David's deathblows.
if my son can learn matching concepts and logic from the (shah, obviously) subpar intellectual example of Super Mario, surely someone out there can program some fun into the socio-political truths behind Lamentations. okay, maybe that one would be more of a "me" game.
In a recent comment, author and Christian humorist Matthew Paul Turner asked:
Dear PBS when is Super Y and the Super Readers going to help King David resist his temptation of boinking Bathsheba & murdering her hubby?
Brother, it's like you read my mind/sponge.
