We are researchers at Northeastern University studying the ethics of XR (extended reality) technologies (like VR headsets and PokémonGo) for neurodivergent children who need your help! Participate in a one-time 90-minute in person focus group where you’ll play with an XR game, watch videos about XR, and have a group discussion about your opinions.
