Their faces just light up… it’s wonderful!

Here’s our occupational therapist Nomi talking about the best moments from her SpecialEffect support visits. It’s a short clip from our our Friday livestream on 3 April, where she chatted with host Becky about working in our Service Delivery Team to help people with physical disabilities to play video games. As the two are fanatical Animal Crossing fans, it only seemed appropriate to host the chat in the game itself! You can see the full stream here.

Below: Nomi's on the right. Note the fantastic SpecialEffect mugs and tees from @NobbyWalker
