    Abstract

    Microcomputers have great potential in therapeutic environments, but, if they are to achieve this potential, they need appropriate software (programs). This paper examines the ideas behind games software and the relevance of commercially available software to therapy. It recommends that specially designed programs are needed and lays down some guidelines for the design and development of such software.
