Video games offer rich worlds, stories, and opportunities to captivate, stimulate, and cultivate the minds and abilities of players. For many, they are a welcome pastime, for some a way of life. What if the doorway to those worlds is closed due to physical disability? In this session, gaming charity SpecialEffect will talk about their 15 years of experience helping physically disabled gamers access video games, and the incredible impact inclusion can have. We believe everyone has the right to play, a fundamental component of learning development. Sharing experiences, building teamwork, managing challenges, and the joy of success. Video games offer a modern, engaging, and unifying alternative to that fundamental human need.
