Any charity that helps people with disabilities especially gamers is great. I am a disabled gamer and really need help sometimes as I suffer with severe pain and fatigue. Any ergonomic or peripheral that helps to make my gaming easier is appreciated.

As someone that knows how much joy videogames give us, seeing disabled people experiencing that same joy is amazing. Life is about living together, and this charity is the embodiment of it. I would love to see them expand to many other countries and eventually the whole world.

It's hard to put myself in those people places, but I think that at the same time that gaming is an escape from the things in my reality I don't like, I think that it is the same for them, and this movement of being able to let them enjoy this games as well is incredible.
I don't thing there is much roomfor expansion, the most common would Better, Faster, Stronger, which would mean covering additional control methods for non-currently covered disabilities or just reaching other countries.

Great to see an organisation share the joy of gaming with people who might not be to in the first place! It would be great to see in the future more new technology which would enable to include people of all different abilities to experience games.

Tbh, I think wht they doing is gr8. Many ppl dont realise tht physically challenged ppl miss out of simple pleasures like gaming. I am keen to see more of such initiatives and more awareness among the gamers about this.

SpecialEffect launch of the world’s first eye-controlled web games will help gamer's with severe physical challenges all around the world to play video games to the best of their abilities

Honestly just keep continuing what you're doing! Every smile you put on a face of someone who's struggling is a smile on my face :)

Big fan of increasing accessibility in games.
SpecialEffect is doing a great job at spreading awareness to game developers for the disabled gaming community.

The world is a better place when more people are playing computer games (console gaming - not so much :LOL:), so any efforts to increase that number are definitely appreciated, encouraged, and welcome. Keep up the great work!

Special effect is a really cool idea, I really like what they're doing and I believe everyone with a disability should be able to find ways to do things they love. Looking at their page and it looks like special effect really puts in a lot of effort to find unique solutions for each person.. that's such a good spirit to have in this world. I'd love to see them get some big funding so they could really ramp up and go worldwide or something, it would be so cool.

I love that there's a charity that focuses on one of the 'non-essentials' that actually improves the quality of these kids lives in a meaningful way. The ability to play is one of the greatest things about life.
