My 8 1/2 year old has moderate autism. He prefers to spend most of his free time watching dvds and recorded programs on our dvr.

This makes for many tired days for us as we have two other children, one of who is 2 years old and has decided to start giving up his naps. We want to start occupying him in some other independent activities, but we are having problems finding anything that keeps him happy for any length of time. Does anyone have any advice?
