Dungeons and Dragons game boosts social skills

Neurodivergent young people in South Australia’s Riverland are benefiting socially by playing a top table game called Dungeons and Dragons, or DnD.

DnD is a game which entails a group of people role playing as different characters, guided by a central person called a game or dungeon master.

Besides the social aspect of DnD, the game also involves math and literacy.
