Gaming helped my social skills a lot... otherwise I would not have spoken to anyone. It helped me connect to the real world.
Rebecca, autistic person who plays games
At Autistica, we’re building happier, healthier lives for all autistic people. We do this by working with the autistic community to do research that matters to them.
Games are a big part of many autistic peoples' lives and can be far more than just a game. It can be a career, a safe space, a freedom, an expression, an escape, a friend, a community.
With our research, we help the world understand autism a bit better.
Together, we can achieve change that matters to autistic people and their families, and become a more inclusive world.
