About Next Level Collaboration

What if a social capacity building program could be both effective in developing confidence and team skills, and a positive experience that children want to go to and will remember for the rest of their lives? 

Next Level Collaboration is a research-based program for children aged between 8 to 15 years old that uses their interest in gaming to meaningfully develop collaborative skills, confidence and friendships.

Based on the latest research

Combining video feedback with collaborative play, this new digital games-based program is the first of its kind in the world. Building from the work of Matthew Harrison’s PhD research this structured program is designed specifically to support and celebrate children with social-emotional differences, including the autistic community and children with ADHD.
