Online Games for kids with attention and learning differences

SparkTop claims to foster skills and self-esteem for kids with attention and learning differences. I wish the games gave more information about exactly what skills each promotes. I couldn’t find it when I scanned the sections for parents or teachers either. Anyway, I really enjoyed CarnyChase though my car got chopped up several times each lap. This game requires attending to small details like where the bumpers are, making incremental adjustments to your strategy, and also figuring out your character’s perspective since you have to use the movement arrows from their perspective, not yours.

In addition to games, the site features three different expert opinions on various questions about living and learning with a possibly unusual brain–though the premise of the site is that every brain is different.
