Meet Rhys. He's 6 and has quadriplegic cerebral palsy. He also has dystonic movements so struggles with using a mouse or standard controllers and he finds fine motor control very difficult.
The SE team went to visit Rhys to see what they could do. They mounted the controller to his chair so he doesn't need to worry about trying to hold it all, and gave him an extension for the left analog stick and a button he could hit with his elbow. With the adaptor that's been loaned to him, he can now have great fun ‘Hulk-smashing’ things as The Hulk in Lego Marvel Super Heroes on his Dad's PS4!
What SpecialEffect do isn't just about videogames, it’s about joining in, being included, achieving things that weren’t easily possible before, having fun and improving quality of life.
Rhys can now has a whole new world of fun and freedom to explore.
