The Inclusive Play Design Guide has been developed by a group of playground and child development experts as an inspirational and educational resource to help create great outdoor play environments for everyone.
Everyone means typically-developing children, children on the autism spectrum, children who have a cognitive disability, and those who use a wheelchair.
Everyone means all the people in the family, not just the children. The issue is much larger. The design of playgrounds and surrounding environments in almost every community prevents parents and grandparents with disabilities, including injured veterans, from taking typically developing children there.
The Inclusive Play Design Guide offers a set of strategies and solutions to the challenges that face communities in their journey to inclusive play.
