Is your child ready
for the Wii system?
disabilities are often not ready developmentally for toys, games and other
recreational activities at the same chronological age as neuro-typical
children. Matching the level of difficulty of operation of the activity to
the skill set of the child can be a hit and miss experience.This can be a
costly error with something like the Wii system.
If you would
like to try the Wii system with your child before purchasing one you may
borrow a spare one that I have for a week. Just e-mail Tim Whiteford at
twhiteford @smcvt.edu to arrange pick up.
