Wii Therapy for Special Needs Students

    • The Wii can be used in special needs classrooms to:

      - help students with their hand/eye coordination
      - encourage students with physical disabilities to move, providing much-needed circulation to their limbs
      - enable students to take part in virtual sports such as baseball, bowling, volleyball, golf and tennis
      - aid students in gaining balance and coordination through virtual dance programs
      - increase/develop the ability to concentrate for a long period of time
      - motivate students to achieve goals
      - help with problem-solving, reasoning, and communication skills
