BAFTA, as part of the Young Games Designers programme, is providing a Relaxed Games Sessions for teenagers with Asperger's, Autism or social anxiety disorder at the National Museum of Computing at Bletchley Park on 28 October 2019.
The drop-in session, sponsored by Paessler AG, is aimed at anyone aged 10-18 who would benefit from a quiet and calm learning environment. Attendees will have the opportunity to hear from games developers and gain insight into the industry as well as being encouraged to develop their own ideas for computer games.
The BAFTA team running the workshop has considerable experience of working with people with autism. It runs competitions that open doors for youngsters to enter the industry.
Melissa Phillips of the BAFTA team said, "If you're 10-18 years old, BAFTA's Young Game Designers opens a world of creative opportunities. When we heard about the Relaxed Opening sessions at The National Museum of Computing, we immediately agreed to come. It should be a very special day for some very special youngsters."
