Chess and Autism

Hugh Patterson’s latest Chess Improver blog post is on the subject of Chess and Autism.

I’ll be posting much more about this when this blog is officially launched at some point in the New Year but meanwhile here are a few links:

An article by Karel van Delft on Chess and Autism from the book Developing Chess Talent.

Karel van Delft interviews Caspar Hermelin, a chess player with Asperger Syndrome.

An article about why autistic children should learn chess (the game of kings… and Aspies) written by Chris Bonnello, a chess player and teacher with Asperger Syndrome.

I’ll return to these and more in a later post.
