Podcast 88 – Dungeons & Dragons & Skills

Sometimes we have to sell people on the merits of games like Dungeons & Dragons. People like parents, principals, teachers, or even our own significant others Usually this comes in the form of telling them all the great benefits playing brings –learning math, reading, communication, teamwork, social skills, and more. D&D is also often specifically praised for its ability to help neurodivergent people develop needed skills, or to provide “therapeutic” experiences for anyone.

But can it? Does it? If so, what can game masters and other players do to make it happen? These are the questions I will discuss with my guest expert this episode.
