In this paper we discuss potential benefits and future directions in virtual reality rehabilitation for co-located motor training in children with developmental movement disorders. We discuss the potential for co-located VR to promote participation using cooperative virtual environments, facilitate social learning, and quantify levels of social interaction. We pay particular attention to the capacity of co-located systems to enhance levels of participation and the psychosocial outcomes of VR therapy. Finally, we offer directions for future research.
