AbleGamers is a non-profit charity with an all-volunteer staff. Our articles are part of a larger movement to make videogames accessible to everyone. If you feel our work helped you in any way, toss a tip into the tip jar on your way out.
If you can’t afford to donate, please consider passing us along to others who might get some help from our extensive game accessibility database.
We would like to thank all the fine folks who have donated over the years. Your contributions are the only thing allowing us to continue bringing joy to children with disabilities and veterans afflicted by trauma all around the country.
Shepherd University invited the AbleGamers Foundation to come on campus and do one of our Accessibility Arcades for the students and local disabled community. The event was a roaring success with hundreds of children and adults coming out to see the technology and in some cases experience gaming the first time.
This lovely young lady came to the event having an increasingly difficult time playing the same games as her siblings. Her mom told us most games were simply too hard. We introduced her to a PC game from 7-128 that had her smiling from ear to ear. Her mom was ecstatic. She told our AbleGamers crew that her little girl had never “come out of her shell” as much as she had at our event. We gave the mom some advice and some information on what types of games might be the most appropriate for young ones to play together. They left together that day hugging each other and giggling about the games they had seen, and the AbleGamers crew left satisfied having helped another family find a way to play together.
