Powered by AbleGamers partner Easterseals Iowa, in collaboration with On With Life, an inpatient and outpatient facility that supports persons who experienced a brain injury, were able to provide their first accessible gaming demonstration event. Several gaming stations were set up for attendees. This allows them to try out the switches and other adaptive gaming devices that were provided by AbleGamers.
Rural Solutions and Assistive Technology Program Director Tracy Keninger said, “Every single effort is worth it. For at least two individuals who attended the event, this is the first time ever they have participated in gaming. In one case, the mom reached out in tears her son was so joy-filled to be able to participate in an activity that he sat on the sidelines watching his peers participate in.”
