The AbleGamers Foundation, a premiere organization dedicated to improving the accessibility of games for players with special needs, has announced the opening of its first AbleGamers lab. Located within the AbleGamers Charity HQ outside Washington, D.C., the new space is designed with a wide range of accessible play devices and assistive technology designed to meet the needs of a broad spectrum of players. "We have had a tremendous outpouring of generosity from the videogame industry and community over the last year," says AbleGamers COO and outreach chair Steve Spohn. "These amazing donors have enabled us to begin consulting with gamers one-on-one to figure out the exact equipment each individual needs." The lab is free, but appointments must be made by email. AbleGamers founder Mark Barlet says that the first appointment has already been scheduled and consultations will soon be underway.
