The aims and focus of the project
This project seeks to add to the e-Motion suite of games for children diagnosed with Autism and Asperger’s, as developed previously. However, your focus can fall upon any learning disability/ difficulty.

You will need to work with your target audience in mind in order to attain the best possible results.
