  • I applaud you for speaking truth over this atrocious article. My son will be 4 in October and did not have hardly any “screen time” until he was over 2 1/2. He would not engage when I tried to teach him new things by getting on the floor with him or taking him outside. He only knew a handful of words and would hum as a form of communication. I tried everything until I decided to see if he would try playing with an educational app. I was astonished at how well he engaged. He’s receiving in-home therapy and also had his screen time. We are making progress!! This article needs to be removed since it holds no credibility and that is sad coming from a person who acquired a PhD. Autism can’t be cured!! It IS a way the brain functions. And these people who are commenting about how their child was suddenly “cured and neurotypical” after removing screen time need to understand that their child was never on the spectrum to begin with.
