Locally, the D&D Group has been featured in media including a feature television piece aired by CBC Television. Groups as far as from Ireland and Bermuda have contacted program coordinators for assistance in starting up similar programs.

The significant amount of interest from organizations resulted in Autism Nova Scotia staff creating a book, The Dungeons and Dragons Autism Guidebook, which walks teachers/educators through starting a Dungeons & Dragons group from scratch. The popular book is now in its second edition.
