Play on Player: Celebrating Disability with Play

Jill Moore, Inclusive Play Specialist, Landscape Structures

Far too often "disability" is associated with being fragile or lessor. The misconception extends beyond those on the outside looking in; people living with disability can be quick to believe their condition is as debilitating as others say. Play on Player addresses the need to ensure everyone experiences play.  Not only to be active, but to find pride, independence, capability and inclusion. 

Learning Objectives

  • Identify how adaptive play uniquely impacts each stage of development from childhood to young adulthood.
  • Develop an understanding of the challenges faced in fostering and creating adaptive play opportunities and how to overcome them.
  • Discover adaptive recreation opportunities in your communities from school settings to competitive level teams.
About Jill: Jill Moore works with the LSI team in adding user voice within product development, as well as inclusive design practices. With a specific focus on merging lived experience with universal design principles, Jill promotes and educates on integrating inclusion in play, and bringing people with disabilities into the conversation. As an accredited educational presenter- both in the classroom and the playground; play has become her full-time role. During her lifetime, she has represented Team USA as a multi-sport athlete, bringing perspective on the importance of the formative role of recreation- and how imperative equitable access to play is for all.

All FRPA Virtual Education Sessions are live and encourage you to stay engaged so that discussion can take place during and after the presentation. Each session has been scheduled for the time of the presentation but please keep in mind that we will have around seven to ten minutes of introductory announcements and possibly words from our sponsor during the session. These may cause the session to run over the allotted time by 10-15 minutes. 
Please make sure your first and last name appear as your profile name so that the moderator will know to let you into the meeting. If are not able to make this change, it is your responsibility to inform FRPA what device name you will be signing in under.
