Launch of SpecialEffect charity

SpecialEffect is a new Oxfordshire based charitable organisation dedicated to helping ALL young people with disabilities to enjoy computer games.

Roadshow events are planned that will provide advice support and a chance for young people with disabilities to try out a range of empowering technology for themselves that will enable them to try and play the same games as their able bodied peers.

Young volunteers will be invited from Oxfordshire universities and youth organisations to share their gaming knowledge with the disabled young people they meet and be taught about the new gaming technology by SpecialEffect’s experts.

Take a look at the SpecialEffect community on Facebook.

Barrie Ellis at Oneswitch.org told us about SpecialEffect and suggested we may like to get involved by donating a couple of Dream-Gamer adapted PlayStation controllers – they shipped today.
