Truly inclusive – the reward of thrill in universal play designs

Children of all abilities want thrilling play activities with friends

This study examines the degree to which non-specialized, age-appropriate play equipment and playgrounds can be usable to children with mobility and learning disabilities, as well as to typically developing children.

Good inclusive playgrounds aren’t more complicated, more time-consuming or bigger than other playgrounds. Read the white paper to make well-informed decisions about what kind of playgrounds are truly inclusive and highly thrilling for all users. 

Cooperative play between children with disabilities and typically developing children is beneficial to all. It improves self-efficiency, tolerance, and empathy in both groups. 

Therefore, KOMPAN’s aim is to make playgrounds more inclusive, by drawing upon universal play formulas. Simply stated: we want to unite children in play.
