Minecraft Club Research Project
Research study seeks youth with ASD between the ages of 10 and 14 years for social skills development. This study will investigate the effectiveness of a social skills program that incorporates interests into play-based activities for youth ages 10-14, those with ASD and, where possible, their siblings of about the same age.
Over the span of eight one-hour sessins during April and May (hopefully starting April 15th/16th), the youth will play MINECRAFTtm on iPads in small groups with direct support from an adult. The sessions will be video-taped. Before the first session and after the last session, the researchers will conduct a short interview (with you and the child) and brief assessment tasks (with your child). The results may be shared at academic conferences and published in academic journals.
For more information, please contact Jeffrey MacCormack at email@example.com or 613-331-6253.
