"Your careful, personal approach was absolutely brilliant. I can't speak highly enough of the whole experience." - Janice, Occupation Therapist

“I am amazed and inspired by the great work that SpecialEffect does every day. I have always believed video games have the power not just to entertain, but really reach and connect. Thanks to SpecialEffect, they are able to connect even more people.” - Tim Schafer, CEO of Double Fine Productions

"Okay, yes, the hardware exists to help, but without SpecialEffect's experience, knowledge, sheer determination and tenacity, these things wouldn’t work as well as they do. After all, technology is all well and good, but if it doesn’t work based on specific needs then it’s useless. SpecialEffect combines everything possible to overcome the seemingly impossible." - Neil Hickton, thisismyjoystick

“I can't explain how grateful I am to you and your colleagues for the time and effort you put in to give me the freedom and normality I so desperately needed!” - Katie Smith

“Ceyda’s now like her friends. Her and her dad will sit and play football, just having fun. It’s lovely to watch, absolutely lovely to watch. I just think SpecialEffect are amazing.” - Mother of Ceyda

“SpecialEffect have been a lifeline for my son Ben. When he developed a left-sided weakness from his brain tumour, a lot of his hobbies became too difficult and so he stopped doing them, including playing his beloved Xbox. He could no longer move the controls; as a 14 year-old boy this was devastating not least because it was also a way of socialising with friends. Being referred to SpecialEffect was a real turning point for Ben. He has been robbed of so much by his illness, but thanks to SpecialEffect he is playing his Xbox again and enjoying it as much as ever. Thank you so much!” - Sharon, mother of Ben

“Besides being very practical, the warm, caring and individualised service provided is inspirational and encouraging. Awarding the highest mark possible comes nowhere near describing the amazing generous service provided by SpecialEffect. Their knowledge and their network of contacts in the world of assistive technology and above all their unstinting commitment, enthusiasm and willingness to go to the ends of the earth to help find solutions, and their humanity and kindness in doing so, is what makes SpecialEffect very special indeed. Our family cannot thank enough Dr. Mick Donegan and his SpecialEffect team for what they have done for my brain-injured wife.” - Paddy, husband of Anne

“Being disabled doesn't mean you shouldn't be able to join in and have fun - you guys make it all possible. I am truly inspired by the work you do.” - Elaine, mother of Addison

“The controller is amazing. It’s made me forget about my injury when I’m using it. Thanks for helping me gain a little normality back in my life.” - Andrew
