Abi rocks LEGO Ninjago

Meet Abi, a Harry Potter loving, LEGO-mad, Batman fan who’s been wanting to play games on her own for a while now, but she’s struggled with a standard joystick because of her Cerebral Palsy.

She was recently bought an Xbox One Adaptive controller and contacted us to see if we could help her match it to her gaming abilities.

She was used to using a wheelchair joystick so our team introduced her to an Ultrastik, a larger joystick that really suited her gaming style. Then we added in two buttons by her feet and two near her left hand - and she was away! Here she is ninja-ing about the place with her new set up in the LEGO Ninjago game.

Great to be able to help you enjoy games again, Abi!
