We have partnered with BFB Labs to offer free access to Lumi Nova for children aged 7-12 facing difficulties with fears, worries or anxiety.
We would like to interview people about how they play Lumi Nova, to help with our evaluation of the game. The interview is online and should take no more than one hour.
If you have played Lumi Nova and you would like to volunteer to be interviewed, please contact Julie Burns Operational & Clinical Team Manager on 01392 386825 or mobile 07929 827225. Alternatively, email our admin team on firstname.lastname@example.org
As this is a therapeutic intervention, we recommended using Lumi Nova at least 2-3 times a week for a minimum of 6 weeks.
If there is no activity after 8 weeks, we may end your child’s access to Lumi Nova so that we can offer that support to other children as we have limited licenses.
For children with sensory difficulties or sensory based anxieties, it is recommended that Lumi Nova is used alongside professional support so that reasonable adjustments can be made. Lumi Nova is not suitable for children with severe or complex needs.
Lumi Nova short video
I didn’t think I would be able to overcome my fear, but I think I have! It’s helped me feel like if I do have another fear then I can easily overcome it by setting myself challenges. It’s a really good game. I don’t think I would have been able to have done it without it.
