The playground should be a place for laughter, friends and fun, for all. Traditional playgrounds focus on accessible-element play count and developmentally appropriate activities; but miss the mark when it comes to supporting a wide range of abilities. Per the CDC, one in 54 children has autism resulting in challenges interpreting sensory messages, engaging in play and social interaction. All children learn through their senses. Evidence-based research shows sensory-rich play environments with appropriate levels of challenge, a variety of activities to promote choice, develop functional skills, imaginary play and social skills provide a higher level of inclusive play for all.
