Building Social Skills For Life. Using Dungeons and Dragons As The Platform

At Brightlives we have found that Dungeons & Dragons (D&D) provides significant benefits for children with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) in developing both social and emotional skills. Through engaging in imaginative role-playing, collaborative problem-solving, and interactive storytelling, children with ASD can enhance their communication abilities, emotional understanding, and social interactions. D&D offers a structured yet flexible environment where participants can practice turn-taking, empathy, and decision-making skills in a supportive setting. The game's narrative elements also encourage creativity and self-expression, fostering a sense of empowerment and confidence in children as they navigate social challenges and build meaningful relationships."
