Mom to an austistic 3 year-old who is obsessed with trains! Not all videos are suitable for him, so I have selected his favorites and strung them together.

I LOVE VideoPlaylist.org!  This tool has made it much easier to monitor the use of Youtube as reinforcement for my students.  I teach in a public school setting and having the kids search through Youtube independently is not allowed. With VideoPlaylist, I can identify acceptable and age appropriate videos for them to access independently- it's the best of both worlds!  Thank you!!

I work with a six year old male who is severely autistic and non verbal.  I have found the YOU TUBE video playlist to be very motivating and highly reinforcing.   Used in  combination with established principles and practices of applied behavior analysis (ABA) this works where other forms of reinforcement have not.  I use it to work on attending, manding, gross and fine motor skills.  The videoplaylist.org website is well organized and user friendly making it an invaluable tool to narrow the gap that separates our world from theirs.

Thank you so much! This past summer, my 10 y.o. daughter spent a half 
hour on YouTube and came away with some new vocabulary.  I had to 
ban her from YouTube. You are providing the exact service I've been 
wishing for. Now she can watch her Sonic Hedgehog videos and I can have 
peace of mind.

 My son LOVES his video playlist. He is a 10 year old with a rare genetic condition called Williams Syndrome. He started out with limited interests when he was younger. Now he has many, and he is very devoted to them. We have stacks and stacks of books about dinosaurs, trains, monster trucks, Native Americans, etc.... He used to love to search images on the web and sit and look through page after page. Finally we found videoplaylist.org. I have finally been able to start putting the books back on the shelf where they belong, instead of in a  pile in the middle of the floor :) (he still loves his books, but isn't so rigid with them)
 Also, I don't have to run to the computer to type in a new word every time he wants to look at different pictures.
 It is such a cool tool. I say tool, because it really is a great motivator for my son. We use his videos as an incentive to do things that he has to do. If he does what is expected, he gets his half hour per day on the computer.
We've just really had a ton of fun making him his own page. He calls it his 'space'. Despite being so fun, he is learning computer skills without realizing it.
anyway, check it out!
