Q&A – Gaming and the benefits
In July 2022 we recorded a Q&A about gaming and the benefits this activity can have for those engaged with it. Guest speakers included:
Andy Smith, founder/creative director of Spectrum Gaming (an online community for autistic young people which has three main intended outcomes: Building Friendships, Increasing Self-Acceptance and Advocacy) and Autistic adult.
Dan Clark, founder of MindJam (online 121 mentorship and guidance for children through gaming and game design) and parent of two Autistic children.
A recording of this Q&A is available to purchase for 30 days via our training hub.
#MoreThanAGame is a Young Minds campaign which focuses on the benefits of gaming and developing a healthy relationship with gaming. Their information for young people and parents isn’t PDA-specific, therefore some of the ideas/tips will need some PDA adaptations.
