The event took place on Saturday 23rd March as a lead into World Autism Awareness Week. A forum created specifically for those needing more insightful information about autism, it provides a platform where people can consult with experts in order to find out more about its related conditions, as well as seek educational and legal advice.

Green Board Games displayed a host of inclusive cross-age/ability play product for parents, teachers, carers and children to experience first-hand. Games included examples from the award winning and globally distributed BrainBox range, including My First BrainBoxes and BrainBox Story Cards, which were shown alongside the ever-popular Qwirkle, Q-Bitz and Corner’d, plus the Young Games Inventor winner games Shaperise and Alphachase. Also on show were the Sensory Genius fidget toys from the Fat Brain range, which are well suited to children who have varying levels of autistic spectrum disorder.

Continuing to support AKO again through 2019, Green Board Games will be sponsoring the National Autism’s Got Talent event, taking place on Saturday 4th May, in addition to the Autism Hero Awards on Saturday 16th November.

Anna Kennedy, founder of the AKO autism charity, commented: “Thanks once again to Green Board Games for supporting us; it is with the help of the likes of the company that we are able to continue forging ahead to raise further awareness for autism. It is our aim to create more opportunities for individuals on the autism spectrum and highlight the significant benefits that their different though processes can bring. Visitors at the Expo look forward to Green Board Games’ presence every year – it wouldn’t be the same without it.”
