    Abstract

    This research explores the potential of tangible tabletop technology for motor skills training of children with Cerebral Palsy. Therapists have emphasized the importance of customization of therapy programs to the needs of each patient. Five customizable games for the TagTiles tangible interactive gaming board are presented. These games have been developed based on feedback from 11 therapists from two clinics in the Netherlands, 9 children with Cerebral Palsy as well as 14 healthy children. The design process and the potential of this solution are briefly outlined.
