After selecting the group of patients and during follow-up visits, we selected 6 activities, already present in the conventional treatment, to be modeled and used in the proposed virtual environment. These activities, divided into different levels to encourage the child to always overcome a goal (stimulating cognitive and motor domains), are called "functional play." According to Wallon [29], these can be very simple movements such as flexing arms or legs, shaking fingers, touching objects, balancing the body, or producing sounds.
