Whether you're still learning the ropes or an expert Minecrafter, we invite you to bring your creativity and join the fun with other neurodivergent children or teens in a safe and inclusive group.

We are not a traditional education or social skills group! Our sessions are flexible and designed to cater for the neurobiological needs of Autistic individuals with a PDA profile (Pathological Demand Avoidance).

Experienced Educators

Our educators bring both their professional teacher qualifications and their own lived experiences as Autistic, ADHD and PDA individuals into our learning environment. Our educators are trauma-informed, specialising in supporting neurodivergent learners with personalised learning approaches. 

Inclusive Space

Our small groups are an engaging and supportive space where connection and relational safety are prioritised. We pride ourselves on supporting a safe group culture where participants can freely express themselves, share their ideas, and engage with the content at their own pace.

Personalised Learning

With supportive educators and a curriculum designed for adaptability, we embrace a flexible approach during our live group sessions. Our curriculum is not a one-size-fits-all; it's a dynamic, evolving pathway that adjusts to match your individual needs, interests, and preferred learning style.

Each round of our 6 Week Minecraft Programs features:

  • Exclusive access to our custom-made cross-platform Minecraft server, which is accessible for both Java and Bedrock editions of Minecraft
  • Weekly 1.5 hour Zoom gaming sessions with a small group of similar-aged peers and two qualified educators
  • Course content aligned with curriculum standards and learning outcomes¬†from multiple countries including Australia, US and UK
  • Videos, guides and visuals¬†provided for participants and their supports to access on our learning platform at any time
  • Certificate of completion provided
  • Optional reports at the conclusion of the 6 week program. We can provide NDIS outcome reports and education reports that reflect participants' engagement with the course, showcasing their achievements and progress based on relevant curriculum standards and individual NDIS goals.

 

 Minecraft Survival: 
Defend and Design

 

With limited resources and the constant threat of mob mayhem, we will embark on a survival challenge that tests our skills and creativity.

Together, we'll exchange survival strategies, craft and mine for resources we need, build 
epic shelters and secret underground bases.

We'll explore how we can harness the power of redstone to engineer resource farms and other automated features, and tame animals to become our loyal allies!
