The main purpose of this report is to elaborate on the strategies for working with people with disabilities and showing a grand potential of this type of co-operation when developing computer games and animations. We have made a point of a thorough investigation and formulating conclusions, which would allow representatives of game design and animation industries to prepare and organize sessions which people with disabilities could participate in, bearing in mind technological, acting and communication conditioning. In our research, we employed the method of participant observation, open and controlled, connected with the analysis of video materials recorded during sessions. The project can be described in terms of scientific and practical assumptions of occupational therapy as subjects were directly and indirectly involved in the process of developing animations.

The effect of the project, apart from the following report, are three types of multimedia materials. In the CD attached to the report, one can find ready animations showing multiple ways of employing unique movement strategies of people with disabilities in games and films, as well as video material, on the one hand, documenting our work with subjects and, on the other, serving as a tutorial. The CD also contains rich and valuable coverage from the sessions, which can be used by companies from game and animation industries in their projects. We encourage to use it in this way whole-heartedly.

This project was carried out in the Department of Journalism and Communication at the University of Lower Silesia in Wroclaw between January and November 2015 as part of the Ministry of Science and Higher Education programme “University of Young Inventors” partially financed by the European Union programme “Innovative Economy”. This programmed aimed at strengthening research co-operation between universities and junior and senior high schools. The research team consisted of eight students from III Liceum Ogólnokształcące of Adam Mickiewicz in Wroclaw, who were supervised by dr Jan Stasieńko.
