Occupational Therapist to Pilot Wii Program for School Based Treatment

Using Wii as a therpeutic tool for the geriatric population recieves a great deal of press but the use of Wii based activities for children in school based programs is discussed only occasionally in the news.  In Oregon, an occupational therapist, with the help of the assistive technology specialist and trainer has planned an assessment day during which students will try out several Wii applications.  The OT will gather useful information about which applications are best for various motor levels and abilities.  This fact finding day, described in the May 7,2009 post on No Limit 2 Learning will provide a wealth of information.  Take a minute to read about this well thought out venture by clicking here.

I just wanted to say that I just found this blog and I think it's great! I'm currently logging and blogging an attempt at weight loss using the Wii and I find the posts here to be very helpful.
