Some video games may have particular benefits for children with cerebral palsy, a new study shows. Researchers observed children with cerebral palsy as they played "active" games -- such as Dance Dance Revolution and Tennis -- on the Nintendo Wii, finding that the games encouraged repetitive movements and allowed them to utilize both sides of the body, a common therapeutic goal for children with the disorder. The games also offered positive feedback in an enjoyable environment, the researchers found.
