It occupies my days and my mind. I used to give presentations on information from Dr. Jane Healey, who I brought to Abilene to speak about her book “Failure to Connect” regarding her prediction that technology would ultimately change our children’s brains. As I assess 2- and 3-year old children as the SLP on an Early Childhood Autism team, I am seeing a great number of children who do not meet the criteria of autism, but who do demonstrate evidence of “different brains” and spend an extraordinary time within a “television” or “game time” environment. If you begin hours of this activity prior to age 2, there will be differences.
