Computer Games For Children With Disabilities

Nanogames are designed for players with a very wide range of abilities. This enables a child with a disability to play and win a wide range of logic, arcade, educational and puzzle games. They can even compete with their parents, friends and siblings on the same game (the parent, child or sibling can play at full speed while the child with a disability can play with customized settings to match their ability).

Customer Feedback

I am just writing to say "THANK YOU" for a wonderful product. My 11-year old son has no diagnosis but has cerebal palsy-like symptoms. He is deaf with a cochlear implant, non-verbal but uses an ACC, has low muscle tone and uses a power wheelchair or walker, therefore his "independent" play options are limited....He absolutely LOVES these games! He will sit and play them for hours if I let him and he engages his 10-year old brother to help him play the ones he can't access with his joystick (crazy taxi, silly sandwich, etc.). Thank you so much for designing these. - Melissa, USA


"...we have many young and adult switch users who will totally benefit from your software. Just being able to play a game competitively with siblings and/or friends is so cool."

"I just wanted to let you know that I will be using these games to assist with switch selection for a variety of the students I come in contact with as an Assistive Technology Specialist with Mobile County Public Schools. I am really excited to have these games as I serve a variety of ages, grades, and exceptionalities."
