  • It would depend on the boy's interests, just like with any kid.

  • Does he like reading? Does he like electronics? If yes, then he probably would.

  • My son is now 10, but when he was 8 or 9 we got him the Kindle Touch. It's one of the few technological things we've gotten him that he's actually taken care of. He's also a HUGE bookworm. He'd rather read all day than play.

  • **My son also has Asperger's Autism Spectrum Disorder. Shortly after we got his diagnosis last year, the did away with it, and moved Asperger's to the Autism Spectrum.

  • Depends on the interests of the child.

  • I will probably continue to call it Asperger's because that is what I have been calling it for 13 years. Autism Spectrum disorder is so vague. I like Asperger's better. I don't know why they decided to change it. I was told it was already on the Autism spectrum, so why the change? Anyway, my personal rant.
