For-Profit • Video game for children with autism


Social Cipher is an empowering video game for kids with autism. With an interdisciplinary team from neuroscience and game design, Social Cipher combines the needs of real families with scientific research and the magic of gameplay and story. We aim to empower kids to embrace their autism and to make social skills practice more accessible to families in terms of time and cost.
