Hello: I am an OT in a school district. We are using Wii also with our students who have multiple disabilties with excellent results. I can't take the credit that goes to out to our assistive technology specialist. She trained the staff on how to use Wii Sports and hooked it up to the Smartboard so it is on the big screen. It works on so many areas: hand-eye coordination, taking turns, being part of a team, functional math opportunites and it is tons of fun.
