Looking for a safe online area for my 10-year-old daughter with CP

Hello everyone! 

I am looking for a support group for my 10 year old Daughter, she has mild Cerebral Palsy affecting her legs and has reached the age where she's really starting to notice the difference between herself and her friends. Generally her friends are supportive and kind but they obviously want to run around and play boisterously, and this usually means my daughter is either knocked over easily or left out... The school is supportive but there is only so much they can do!

I'm wondering if there is a forum where young people with similar issues can talk and support each other online? She is very good with tech and loves multiplayer games like Roblox, so it wouldn't be a stretch for her to use a forum. Does anyone know of any safe online areas that might interest her and let her talk to others who have gone through similar experiences?

Thank you all in advance!

Davey Jones

    Hi @DaveyJones.
    Both my daughters would be on Roblox (and various other multiplayer games) all day long if they could. Unfortunately, I've not heard of a forum that fits what you've described. Obviously there's the r/disabledgamers community on Reddit, but that's not specifically geared towards kids.

    @GamerGirl37, have you ever come across anything like this?
