link to discuss (the pie): 

The effectiveness of virtual reality (VR) for individuals with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) has been discussed at length in the literature. Although researchers hypothesize that VR could be a highly effective training, therapeutic, and intervention modality, extant systematic literature reviews and meta analyses suggest only moderate effects. This mismatch between anticipated and actual effectiveness has been attributed to methodological limitations, including small sample sizes, limited use of control groups, and a lack of longitudinal research. However, absent in the discourse are considerations of how the design of VR technology might influence the effectiveness of interventions. Interrogating the question of technology design reveals substantial disparity in how researchers in this area conceive of and characterize VR as a whole, as well as how VR interventions for individuals with ASD are designed.
