Occupational therapy can be daunting for any student. They often come into an OT situation frustrated and unwilling to accept help. Students with disabilities tend to be sensitive about their limitations, which can make therapy a challenge. Structuring an educational environment to allow for student success is critical to ensuring that students have a successful experience.

Gamification is the process by which video games and educational goals can merge, creating a new way to teach students or help them focus on skills which need improving.
