Harpers Ferry, West Virginia –Â AbleGamersÂ – the leading charity and organization wielding the power of gaming to break down the barriers of economic and social isolation for people with disabilities – is thrilled to announce its attendance at theÂ New York Metro Abilities ExpoÂ from April 29 – May 1, 2016, to showcase the latest innovations in adaptive gaming technologies for disabled gamers.
AbleGamers will be located in the Adaptive Gaming Pavilion in Booth #1117 at Abilities Expo, sharing with attendees the positive impact gaming has on one’s social and emotional health. Attendees will be able to try out for themselves the new adaptive gaming equipment AbleGamers provides to the disabled community via itsÂ Expansion PackÂ program — free care packages containing modified controllers and peripherals designed to allow disabled gamers to enjoy today’s hottest video games, allowing those with impaired mobility to experience what it is like to walk, run, climb, drive and even fly in a virtual world — and learn more about the charity’s support programs at the AbleGamers booth.
