Meet Mike and his wife Carmela.
In January 2017, their son Luke was diagnosed with autism. While meeting other families, it became apparent to them that living with autism can often separate individuals from society.
As a response to this reality, they decided to try an idea, by creating something called Family Game Day.
What they discovered was that this humanitarian initiative promoted inclusive spaces and worked as an effective awareness tool for autism.
It also demonstrated that the world of play can, in fact, make it easier for people to connect, no matter what walk in life they have had to take...and at the very least, allow for individuals to co-exist.
Now, Path of Play institutes an array of gaming projects homes early intervention centres, and schools.
This project is beginning to open more doors of understanding and ultimately, acceptance for many of these families.
