Accessibility in Role-Playing Gaming

We have decades of background in accessibility research and advocacy for gaming, gaming events, ADA and HIPAA compliance audits, and especially role-playing game design and considerations for accessibility in all formats: tabletop, live-action, electronic, and hybrids.

Our community programs, and our volunteer staff programs take into account and support our diverse accessibility background.

Accessibility, education, and recreational therapy consulting or direct services for populations ranging from 2.5 year old non-verbal Autism spectrum, people with brain injuries, through senior adults with cognitive impairments, and a wide range in between. In addition to direct client programs also provide professional training as well as programs for community, educational, and therapeutic settings.
