Description

Spectrum Gaming is a friendly and accepting community for autistic young people (aged 13-17) who have a shared passion for gaming. Our main focus is for autistic gamers to make some friends, play games together and have fun! The platform we use is Discord, but we also have a Roblox community and a Minecraft Server. 

The group was set up by some autistic advocates who oversee the community, but all decisions are made by the young people. We run daily events and competitions on different games and have a variety of safe ways for the young people to chat with each other and develop positive relationships. In addition to having a focus on gaming, we have a YouTube channel for the young people who are interested in YouTube and offer advice to young people who would like to grow their own YouTube channels.
