Not too many parents are excited when their child is enamored by a video game, but I was jumping for joy today. I wasn’t sure what to expect when Case sat down at the video game station in the recreation therapy pavilion at UNC Children’s Hospital. To my surprise, he quickly learned how to jump, kick, and turn his opponent into an egg.
I’m sure someone can explain the cognitive skills required to understand such a game – immediate cause and effect, hand-eye coordination, fine motor planning, etc., but I just want you to do what I did – watch and enjoy.
Case is also understanding more about putting together interlocking puzzles as seen here.
