We are so glad that you have contacted us and would love to help! In The Son-Rise Program we do believe that limiting, or even eliminating electronics altogether can help our children hugely and support their growth in a much more meaningful way. Let me expain a little about this. Our children ism (stim), meaning that in a world that is out of control to them in many ways, they engage in repetitious and exclusive behaviors in order to create predictability in their lives and soothe themselves. TV, computers, video games, etc are the ultimate stim! So because our children already have the capacity to create hypnotic, repetitious behaviors (even without these devices) that when they use these electronics they fuel the autistic part of their personality even more. In essence, they don't need any help being autistic, they can do that on their own.
When we, even Neuro-Typical people use TV, internet, and other electronics, we tend to also become very absorbed and distracted to the point where we are less social with those around us. For Robbie, his electronics are providing more of that same thing that he already has the capacity to do on his own. So it'sa not so much that when you take these things away from him that he stops scripting or verbally stimming, but more that there are opportunities to connect and relate to him more without competing against a machine.
That is where in The Son-Rise Program we prioritize joining in his world, creating a loving and accepting relationship with him and inspiring him to connect more deeply to people around him. From there, we are much more able to model and teach him how to use language in a more communictaive way.
I hope this perspective helps.
