Children with disabilities have diminished access to playgrounds, survey shows
Play between children with disabilities and typically developing children support the areas of self-efficiency, tolerance, and empathy in both user groups. This survey from the KOMPAN Play Institute shows that 71% of the wheelchair users found their nearest playground to be inaccessible. Additionally, the survey points out the activities the children prefer.
Playgrounds are well-known motivators for effectively getting children to be physically active, in a fun way. However, in order for this to be true for children of all abilities, playgrounds need to be equally accessible and interesting to both groups.
