There is no known cure for autism, but there are treatment modalities available for its core symptoms. One of these treatments is the use of assistive technology, which helps children remember visual cues and improve their fine motor skills.
Recently a mobile app has become an unexpected source of help for children on the autism spectrum. Pokemon GO, an enhanced-reality, location-based game that involves catching virtual monsters, has become a worldwide phenomenon and has been praised for encouraging the physical activity of its players. The game also has helped children on the autism spectrum go outside and socialize with other people, which is something they usually have difficulty doing.
Dr. James McPartland, the director of Yale University's Developmental Disabilities Clinic in the Child Study Center, stated in a CNN interview that Pokemon GO is good for children on the autism spectrum because the game is a great conversation starter and features characters with memorizable facts.
