About this webinar

Hosted by Jess Rowlings and Dr Matthew Harrison from Next Level Collaborationthis webinar focuses on the benefits of online gaming in developing skills and knowledge in social capacity, collaboration and positive autistic identity. 

  • Structure and design of games that support collaboration during play. What makes a game good for supporting cooperation and teamwork?
  • Collaborative skills that can be used during cooperative play. What are these skills, what do they look like, and how can we use games to support the use of these skills?

Supporting young autistic people with healthy online video gaming webinars

Online friendships can be more prevalent with autistic children, however an increased amount of time spent online in gaming communities may make children more vulnerable to being exposed to unsafe behaviour.

Amaze’s free online safety webinars educate parents and carers about the increased risk of harm for autistic children participating in online gaming communities. Our expert guest speakers will provide practical strategies about being safe online and building healthy online habits. Parents and carers will have an opportunity to ask the experts questions as part of each session.
