Jaspar's learning to drive

If you’d followed the sound of laughter into our games room yesterday you’d have found Jaspar having a great time playing Burnout Paradise Remastered. Jaspar has cerebral palsy and he’s always wanted to enjoy the fun of playing racing games.

“We helped Jaspar try several setups today,” said Joe, one of our OTs, “But that one that worked best included a button switch mounted under his chin for toggling acceleration on and off, plus two different types of switches placed either side of his head for steering.”

Apparently Jaspar’s spent a huge amount of time watching YouTube videos of other people playing games, so it’s an honour to help him finally join in the magic!
