Gaming Therapy

Helping neurodiverse children and adults connect through a shared love of gaming.

Log on, let's get learning

Our innovative Gaming Therapy groups use popular online games Minecraft and Animal Crossing to help neurodiverse children and adults achieve their therapy goals.

Group sessions are held on Therapy Focus’ secure web server, where participants are assigned specific roles and work to achieve a shared goal. This process encourages social connection in a fun and safe environment, and has been proven to be particularly beneficial in achieving social therapy goals.
