Abstract


Recent development in new technology has led many teachers, schools and other educators to use it with their students in their learning process. Especially, in the field of special preschool education the role of educational computer games seem significant. In this short review paper we give a brief overview of the most representative articles that concentrate on these games that support preschool children who face literature, math, cognitive, intellectual and physical difficulties. The role of computer educational games in children who are gifted or face developmental disorders (autism) is also explored.
