Welcome to our Minecraft Social group page. We have been running our Minecraft program for a few years now and have an amazing little community of little inventors and Minecraft extraordinaire. We are always excited to meet new kids and look forward to sharing this amazing space with you.
Playing video games is a common activity for children with ASD. Throughout my studies and research, I have noticed that with Minecraft’s popularity, we have had the opportunity to see the impacts and opportunities for Minecraft to enhance the education and social connections of Neurodiverse children.
Minecraft is an opportunity to integrate virtual and real-world social connections. It's "immersive emotional experiences that provide opportunities to practice new
regulatory skills that the kids can then integrate outside the game
