This week we're looking at the intersection of video games and mental health. Yesterday we talked to a game designer; tomorrow we'll talk to a researcher. Today we're going to hear from an occupational therapist. Amanda Foran works with children and adults who are on the Autism spectrum at Motion Therapy in Rockville, Md. She's found that video games -- played by both people on and off the spectrum -- can help build social interaction skills.
