Autcraft Club

Friday 22nd April saw the launch of the world’s first Autcraft club for KS3 students on the autistic spectrum and associated learning difficulties (such as Sensory Processing Disorder and ADHD with autistic traits). Autcraft is a dedicated whitelist Minecraft server, which is fully moderated voluntarily by parents of autistic children 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, to make it an autism-friendly and safe online place. A small group of students gathered for the first meeting where we joined via Skype by Stuart Duncan, the founder of Autcraft, all the way from Ontario, Canada. Stuart, aka AutismFather, answered the students’ questions about the server and told them about all the exciting new features that are coming soon, such as the update to the newest version of Minecraft which will allow players to glide over the world with a new piece of armour. The students were delighted to visit the server and discover a tardis (which was built by Stuart) and to start planning where they are going to build their base.

The group was visited by our new Headteacher, Mr Sellars, where he heard a presentation by Robbie Watson (TJKK) about Autcraft. It is Robbie’s excellent experiences on the server which have prompted us setting up the club.

All involved would like to thank Mr Butterfield for his help and support in setting up the group.

The photo below shows Stuart chatting with Robbie about the new features coming up soon. To find out more about Autcraft, please visit www.autcraft.com. If any parents are interested in their children joining the club please e-mail Mrs Watson at jwatson@gosford-hill.oxon.sch.uk
