We enable physically disabled people to to enjoy inclusion through technology

Story



SpecialEffect is a UK-based charity that focuses on bringing the joy and excitement of gaming into the lives of people with physical disabilities.


SpecialEffect put fun and inclusion back into the lives of people with physical disabilities by helping them to play video games.


By using technology ranging from modified joypads to eye-control, they find ways for people to play to the very best of their abilities.
But they don’t just do it for fun. By levelling the playing field, they bring families and friends together and have a profoundly positive impact on therapy, confidence and rehabilitation.

The results have been life-changing for people like Charlie.

Charlie is a big fan of games like Mario Kart and Paw Patrol. Playing those games has been made really difficult by his cerebral palsy. SpecialEffect worked with Charlie’s dad to put together a custom equipment loan setup that included several large button switches to replicate the controller buttons, and a large joystick that was potentially easier for Charlie to use.


Charlie loves watching gaming streams and, thanks to SpecialEffect, he now gets to join in. That’s the sort of work that this amazing charity does, giving Charlie, as his dad puts it, “an entrance to many worlds that he loves.”
