The playground should be a place for everyone to experience laughter, friends, and fun for all. Traditional compliant design focuses on minimum access. Through intentional, great design, we can support a much wider range of disabilities, from physical impairments to developmental disorders, as well as autism and sensory processing diagnoses. We will explore best practice design elements to foster a strong sensory foundation for all; cognitive, physical, and social play; and how we’re able to create innovative spaces that promote inclusion, imagination, literacy and language skills, and engagement. We will discuss how to create rich inclusive spaces that meet the budgets and needs of a variety of spaces for all communities and places that need inclusion most.
