AutisticaPlay is the games arm of Autistica. We work with the players and creators of games. Together, we can achieve change that matters to autistic people and their families, and become a more inclusive world.

Gaming helped my social skills a lot... otherwise I would not have spoken to anyone. It helped me connect to the real world.

For the support network

Games can mean more to those who play them than just a recreational hobby. Not everyone knows how valuable games can be as a medium for education, socialising, connectivity, experiences that would otherwise be inaccessible.

As the support network for the players, it's important to manage a healthy games experience while also acknowledging the benefits of games and what they mean to the players.

These below links take you to askaboutgames.com, a great resource for anyone who doesn't play games themselves but wants to learn more.
