SpecialEffect - helping young people with disabilities using cutting edge technology

Alison said...
SpecialEffect is a small national charity dedicated to helping all young people with disabilities to enjoy computer games and other creative interests through cutting edge technology - for rehabilitation, inclusion and pure fun! We also specialise in Eye Control Technology. Imagine: You wake up after an accident. You can't move anything except your eyes. And you can't speak. That's when we can help. Through eye-movement alone, we help people operate a computer for communication, independence, work and leisure. SpecialEffect's achievements include the world's first fully-accessible games suite at a children's hospice and award-winning games roadshows that take place across the country including at the Children's Trust in Surrey, Stoke Mandiville and Great Ormond Street Hospital School. We recently launched our Loan Library, inspired by our work helping soldiers injured in Afghanistan through to young people with degenerative conditions who can no longer play in any other way. These include the loan and support of Ipad's and suitable games to an amazing young girl in Surrey called Sophie. http://www.thesophiestory.co.uk/ We do whatever it takes, giving the time, patience and expertise, because we've seen first-hand the kick-start it has on motivation, self-esteem, confidence and quality of life. Our website is www.specialeffect.org.uk Thank you for considering SpecialEffect
