Designed with the heart and understanding of the neurodivergent experience, our community embraces the rich culture and identity of Autistic, ADHD, and PDA players. Here, every block placed, every world created, and every interaction is a step towards building a supportive and inclusive environment.

 

Our inTune Craftways server is more than just a place to play Minecraft; it’s a vibrant community grounded in the principles of positive autistic identity and culture.

Inclusive Community

Our Minecraft community is a supportive space where we prioritise connection, relational safety, and personal autonomy. 

We pride ourselves on supporting a safe group culture where members of all ages can game together, freely express themselves, share their ideas, and feel included and supported.

Safe Moderation

Our community moderators and mentors bring their professional qualifications and their own lived experiences as Autistic, ADHD and PDA individuals into our Minecraft gaming environment.

Our moderators are trauma-informed, specialising in supporting neurodivergent individuals with relational safety at the forefront. 

Collaborative Ethos

inTune Craftways¬†operates on a unique, egalitarian model that values the contributions of all members equally. Our server is "ours" in every sense‚ÄĒbelonging to all members, whose feedback actively shapes the development of new game spaces.¬†

This approach ensures that our Minecraft server remains inclusive, fun, and reflective of the diverse needs and ideas of our community.

Flexible Gaming

Whether you prefer the creativity of Creative mode, the challenge of Survival, the heights of Skyblock, or the excitement of MiniGames, our server is designed to cater to your gaming preferences.

With 24/7 server access, and weekly Zoom gaming sessions, we offer the flexibility for members to shape their own Minecraft adventure, any time, day or night.

One of my students started your Minecraft program & it warmed my heart to hear him say 'I already made a friend' and that they went on to play together later in the day. This is huge for him. Thank you.

Kristy Forbes is an Australian based autism & neurodiversity support specialist with experience working with clients both nationally and internationally. This includes neurodivergent people and their families; and professionals who wish to support them, such as educators, psychologists, paediatricians, allied health professionals, support workers and integration aides.

 

Her most valuable insights, however, come from lived experience.

Kristy is autistic, ADHD and has PDA. She's also a parent to four neurodivergent children, all with varying neurodivergent experience and expression including being non speaking, experiencing apraxia/dyspraxia, tourettes and PDA.

Her own story is documented throughout her work in her writing, speaking, the programs and trainings she has designed and delivers and in private consultation with thousands of educators, allied health, parents & carers over her life.

Kristy left school at fifteen, after a series of behavioural modification programs and being placed in isolation. She has experienced addiction, family violence, homelessness and became a parent at just 18.

Her work and approach to parenting and connecting is through the lifelong lens of truly seeing and valuing the individual, and the way they experience & respond to the world.

Her most impactful work is in the PDA space, having experienced incredible adversity as a result of her own experience of compromised mental & physical health in her youth, being in the juvenile court system, and experiencing other outcomes of chronic and systemic misunderstanding of who she was.

Kristy's work in educating and supporting neurodivergent families has created a foundation of empathy and understanding that is the bedrock of our Minecraft community.
