People with Asperger's often don't feel safe in the real world, so they retreat into the video game world. They can often spend days, weeks, months, years or even decades immersed in the video game world. However, we don't necessarily see that as a problem.
In the video game world (like Minecraft, for example), they can collaborate with new friends, learn new communication skills and process their emotions in a safe way. That's why we built our own private Minecraft server, especially for AE+ members.
With our own trained team of moderators in place, this is a space for people with Asperger's of any age to learn, grow, make friends, and have fun in a safe, nurturing environment that they want to be a part of.
Unlike public servers that people play in, this server is only for AE+ members, which means that we know everyone who plays on this server and can in contact with parents if (and when) big emotional events take place.
Right now we have a survival server and a creative server, with an adventure server coming soon.
