I totally agree with this article. I rarely comment, but this is important to my children who are on the Autistic Spectrum. Some of them are really reluctant readers, yet when film is introduced they get IMMENSE enjoyment and satisfaction from the input.They are able to identify with characters, discuss what is happening in any scene and can write desriptions of the film beautifully.
