Explore Inclusive Playgrounds – January 19th @ 1PM ET

Developmental disabilities are a group of conditions due to physical, learning, language, or behavioral impairment. According to the CDC, about one in six children in the U.S. have one or more developmental disabilities or other developmental delays. No wonder the need for inclusive playgrounds in our communities continues to grow. This course will examine successful inclusive playgrounds from around the country. We will explore what elements are similar and help make the playground inclusive. We will discuss decisions communities made that make their playgrounds unique and fit the needs of their constituents. We will look at playgrounds with ground-based play, ramps, themes, unique climbers, and tons of sensory play. We explore exceptional inclusive playgrounds from New York to Nevada and multiple places in between.

Outcomes:

At the end of the course, participants will be able to :
– Discuss the most important elements of an inclusive playground
– Define terms such as range of challenge, parallel play, and sensory play.
– Discuss the pros and cons of height
