Partner Success Story
Dylan loves watching his sister and brother-in-law play Wii, PlayStation, and Xbox games. While Dylan loves watching his friends and family play video games, what he really wanted was to play with them. So, his family reached out to AbleGamers to find out what we could do to help get him in the game so he could be included instead of just watching.
Dylan was limited to using only a mouth stick on a tablet. AbleGamers Sr. Peer Counselor, Jessie, assessed his accessibility barriers and worked with Dylan to develop a personalized solution that would allow him to play. After much consultation, they decided the Quadstick would be the ideal solution.
It took practice, but Dylan got better at using his new equipment and can access many more games than before. Now, Dylan is hitting home runs in his MLB game and playing with family and friends, proving that everyone can game with a bit of practice and persistence.
His family said, “We really appreciate all you have done to make this possible for Dylan. He was just saying this morning how happy he was when he finally made a home run in his MLB game. This is a terrific program, and we are truly grateful for this grant. Blessings to you all."
