Review for The Ablegamers Foundation Inc, Harpers Ferry, WV, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I have worked with Ablegamers for over a year. They put together an amazing Accessibility Day at Games for Health in Boston last year, and also hosted a Game Arcade where people could come and play video games using adaptive switches and joysticks. Mark Barlet's passion for helping people with disabilities get more access to digital entertainment is infectious, and he was just honored by New York City's Mayor Bloomberg for his efforts. Ablegamers also works to help non-profits build computer accessibility into places like youth centers. The writers for the website, ablegamers.com, are an authentic community of disabled gamers and Mark has given them a place to talk about gaming and the devices and workarounds that will help give them a more fruitful gaming experience. I'm honored to be a member of the advisory board, and plan to continue working with Mark and his team as they advance accessibility for everyone.

Role:  Board Member & I have worked with Mark on Game Accessibility Day, and we are involved in several editorial projects together to build awareness for disabilities, gaming and accessibility.
