Games to support students with learning disabilities

The games below were designed and developed as project coursework by undergraduate students on the Serious Games module in Computer Science at Nottingham Trent University. The students are guided by a team of mentors including both staff and students from a local special school (Oak Field School, Nottingham), and by experts in accessibility and serious games from the university. These games represent some of the best outcomes in recent years, and may be a useful resource to many teachers and schools.
