Newsbrief: The American Association of People with Disabilities will present a leadership award to AbleGamers Foundation co-founder and president Mark Barlet for his efforts advocating game accessibility for disabled players. Barlet, an Air Force veteran and a monoplegic, helped create the AbleGamers Foundation and its site catering to disabled gamers in 2004. The group promotes greater access to games for people with disabilities, and develops equipment, programs, and services for disabled gamers. He will receive the 2012 Paul G. Hearne Leadership Award and $10,000 to continue his work in the disability community from AAPD -- which is dedicated to "[organizing] the disability community to be a powerful force for change" -- at Washington D.C.'s 2012 AAPD Leadership Gala on March 21.
