Adaptive Gaming

There is growing evidence that digital games can fulfill a number of important functions in the lives of both children and adults with disabilities. Games that draw upon geolocation data, physical movement and other non-traditional forms of user interaction are especially promising in this regard, as suggested by recent studies demonstrating how kinetic game systems such as the Nintendo Wii can facilitate entry into gaming for players with disabilities, both as a novel and entertaining leisure activity, as well as an innovative approach to rehabilitation and exercise. Ongoing developments within gaming technologies and design, such as the introduction of WYSIWYG tools for creating, modifying or heavily customizing games at the level of design, suggest additional opportunities for improving gaming experiences for users with disabilities or other special needs.
