Qu’est-ce qu’une arcade de jeux en réalité virtuelle?

 

Ctrl V est un réseau de stations de jeux physiques en réalité virtuelle. Vous pouvez y entrer et prendre part à des jeux en réalité virtuelle pendant une heure et ainsi vous immerger dans une expérience de jeux sans pareil! Voici une vidéo qui présente l’équipement et l’arcade de jeux - https://youtu.be/AJHXXXjuKjA

 

 

 

Nous serons les seuls à utiliser l’arcade et nous paierons les frais de location du matériel de sécurité nécessaire. Pour permettre au plus grand nombre de familles possible de participer à cette activité, nous vous demandons de choisir une seule des trois périodes de jeux prévues.

 

Périodes disponibles

 

Le vendredi 4 mai 2018 – de 17h 50 à 19 h
Le vendredi 4 mai 2018 – de 19 h  à 20 h 10
Le vendredi 4 mai 2018 – de 20 h 10 à 21 h 20

 

Nombre de places limité. Préinscription obligatoire.


Notes

Les participants doivent porter des écouteurs, un casque et autres équipements car cette activité s’accompagne de bruits forts et de lumières vives qui bougent rapidement. Il ne s’agit donc pas d’un environnement adapté aux personnes qui sont très sensibles aux sons et éclairages. À vous de décider si cette activité convient à votre enfant.

 

Pour permettre au plus grand nombre de familles possible de participer à cette activité, nous vous demandons de choisir un seul jeu. ***Les doubles choix entraîneront l’annulation de plusieurs jeux, sans préavis.***

 

Seules les inscriptions annulées avant 17 h, le 30 avril 2018 ou à une date antérieure seront remboursées.

General FAQ

1.) Do I need to print out ticket or email confirmations to attend this event?

For most of our events there is no need to print anything, unless the event specifies otherwise.  When you arrive at the event, you will have to check in at the registration desk.  You will be asked for your name and how many people are attending with you.  That's all.

2.) Do I need to bring proof of diagnosis?
No, not needed.  Again, just check in at the registration desk and enjoy the event.

3.) Is there a cost to attend this event?
Most of our events are free of charge because the cost is covered by Autism Ontario's Potential Programme, in partnership with Ontario’s Ministry of Children & Youth Services and the local Autism Ontario Chapter.  If there is a cost, you will see it on the registration page when you select how many ticket you want.

4.) Do I need to be a member of Autism Ontario to register and participate?
No.  While membership does provide other great opportunities, events provided through Autism Ontario’s Potential Programme are open to all families of children with ASD, under the age of 18, who reside in Ontario.
