Evidence-Based Therapy and Immersive Gaming
With roots in real-world adventure-based therapy, Mud Club launched in early 2020. MUD, an old gaming term for Multi-User Dimension, is a fun way to connect therapy and adventure with the technologies kids love. Our sessions embrace, share and celebrate neurodiversity.
Mud Club offers a space for autistic youth to learn with and from each other, where collaboration and community empower the autistic voice. In every program and therapist interaction, Mud Club strives to deliver principled therapy in line with these four principles:
Promotion of Self-Advocacy
Building True Community
Iterative Self Improvement
