Although people with Autism benefit from social skills training, most programs use the ABA model, work with kids who need rote practice, and are primarily focused on behavioral stabilization. There is a gap in services for kids who need more nuanced social skill and friendship development. The Quest! Program is the first original tabletop role playing game (RPG) designed to encourage more sophisticated social behavior. It’s therapeutically adaptable and easy to use in group settings. Our goal is to provide Quest! Certifications to providers for exponential reach and impact on children with Autism and related disorders.
The most popular social skills interventions employ highly structured practice of specific skills. Role Playing Games (RPGs) as therapy are not typically considered and are out of reach for the majority due to their complexity.
RPGs teach collective storytelling and creative problem solving. The game scenarios require deductive reasoning and diplomacy through engaging challenges. By creating a dynamic system of natural play, we’ve engineered a highly motivating environment that appeals to all kids.
This revolutionary system puts the power and benefits of RPGs within reach of all service providers in the fields of speech pathology, social work, education and beyond. By gamifying social skills practice with RPGs, Quest! allows the therapist to create more organic dialogue opportunities through challenges individualized to build specific, and even nuanced, skills and encourage relationship development.
This simple system is easy to learn. It takes the best parts of RPGs and integrates them with incentives to create motivated engagement, collaboration skills and teamwork.
We are currently seeking funding opportunities to create the training module for professionals. Sessions of Quest Seekers! are being offered in-store. Contact us to be added to the list for more information.
