Is it ok for a three-or-four year-old to spend many hours a day playing DS?

My wife works at a pre-school where one of the little boys has little interest in doing anything other than playing DS, is not well socialized and a poor communicator. Isn't this a form of neglect? This kid is being deprived of the "normal" range of experience during the most important developmental period of his life. What's going to happen to him?
