You may recall that last year we started a blog series called Disabled Voices Online, where we found out about how people with different disabilities found the experience of creating online content and having an online platform.
As you may know, the Aidis Trust has been running a project called Everyone Can Game, which aims to help disabled people to become involved in gaming. As a part of which, there have been gaming days to get disabled children playing games in an accessible way. Well, I thought it might be a good opportunity to catch up on how things are going as well as talk all things gaming with one of the project’s volunteers.
May is a very busy month where awareness weeks are concerned. This week 15 to 21 May 2017 is deaf awareness week. So this post is all about deaf awareness.
This week 8 to 14 May 2017, is mental health awareness week. While it’s not directly linked to the work that we do, I thought as it is an often misunderstood and overlooked issue, that it is an important issue that is worth covering.
You may have heard that The Aidis Trust is running gaming days as part of the Everyone Can Game project, where disabled children are being given the opportunity to partake in accessible computer games.
