DigitalSpace produced this new version of the "Buddy Street Crossing Safety Game" for Dr. Dorothy Strickland and Do2Learn of Raleigh, North Carolina, USA. This work was funded by the National Institutes of Health (NIH) in Bethesda, Maryland and was implemented by DigitalSpace in the Adobe Atmosphere 3D platform. The game provides children with Autism an environment to learn how to navigate sidewalks and street crossings through the use of an innovative game tuned to their specific needs.

We would like to thank Dr. Strickland for introducing us to the world of special needs learning games and invite you to try the game yourself by crossing the street with Buddy the dog.
