The articles in this journal self-study highlight potential benefits of video games in the clinic and classroom. The articles demonstrate how gaming principles and applied video game design can result in measurable behavioral changes across populations that SLPs serve. The first article describes principles of video games that can enhance efficiency and motivation in intervention and then illustrates these principles in a case study. The second article describes the social-emotional benefits of video games as a leisure activity according to individuals with autism spectrum disorder.
