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.
- 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.
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.
