"Hello! I was a counselor at the MDA 2017 Summer Camp and participated

in both the Battle Royale and the Adventure Quest. All I can say is

that you guys are AWESOME. My shy camper completely opened up for the

first time during the Battle Royale and had the best time. I know that

it was his favorite activity from the camp! Plus, he loved that he got

to decorate and keep his very own shield. Thank you for everything that

you guys do. I'm forever grateful to you! "

This was regarding the our use of tabletop and live-action role-playing games, and drum circle facilitation, with dozens of children ages 6-17 with Muscular Dystrophy, many of whom were in wheelchairs, and some even with tracheotomies to breath. More details on this program here: <pending>

This application of research, since 2004 providing role-playing game-based services to special needs populations to help them achieve their educational, recreational, and therapeutic goals, also feeds back into the body of research addressing the plethora of research questions the RPG Research Project has been answering since 2004.
