Dungeons & Dragons & Autism

Episode 5 of the Sherwin Brothers Show is all about Dungeons and Dragons, which Austin started playing recently, and Tyler has played for several years.  

While mostly thought of as a fantasy game for the exceptionally nerdy, Dungeons and Dragons has seen a surge in recent popularity thanks to the television show Stranger Things.  It is also being used to help kids with Autism develop social skills, friendships, and social awareness!
