I'm of the opinion that we shouldn't tell them anything about how to
make their game designs more accessible before the session. To be as
good as a designer as Will Wright, you need to do your research. Once
we give them the idea, accessible games for people of various
disabilities we should let them go in whatever direction they want.
This will force them to research what disabilities are, etc. If they
are skilled designers, (which they are) they should come up with some
great ideas.
