-Gaming 14+ at Autism Inclusive
- Are you aged 14 or older?
- Do you enjoy gaming?
- Interested in socialising and making friends?
Come along to our Gaming 14+ sessions, specifically for neurodiverse gamers aged 14 through to adult, whether diagnosed or not. Supported by the fabulous Steve Morgan Foundation, we have space for twelve gamers, using a mix of Xbox Series S consoles, Nintendo Switch handsets, Oculus VR headsets and retro arcade machines. Sessions run every Monday evening 7pm-9pm, £5.00 per gamer. Price includes a free drink or snack from our café. We also run a reward scheme; get your gaming card stamped at five sessions and get your sixth session for free!
Gaming 14+ is so much more than just a gaming session. The evening allows our young adults to attend an enjoyable activity in a friendly, safe, supportive and judgement-free environment. They can game on their own or socialise with others. The session helps to develop their communication, speech and language skills, their independence and executive functioning skills.
Parents and carers have the option to stay in our lounge area, or once we’ve got to know our gamers, they can be dropped off and attend the session independently – please liaise with our Gaming Lead to discuss this option. Our sensory spaces are also available during the session, as is our outdoor area during the summer months and lighter evenings.
To attend Gaming 14+ please book via the website.
