Our online gaming sessions are ideal for children or young people who struggle to engage face to face, we can support them with their communication interaction skills whilst they play a game of their choice. We also use the session to develop social skills and build trust with another supportive adult. Our online gamer/mentor can play cross platforms with either a keyboard or a head set (or both) to help develop a trusting relationship with your child/young person without the pressure of being face to face.
Over time, the relationships built through this service has meant that we have been able to create small safe and secure social online networks around a particular game which has then led to the group meeting and continuing a friendship at our base with their peers in person alongside their trusted adult. Ideal first steps particularly for children or young people who may be Neurodiverse and need support in a creative way.
