Play Without Limits: Creating an Inclusive Play Environment for All

Inclusive play promotes play between children of all abilities and cultural backgrounds and encourages acceptance and friendship. It breaks down barriers, ...

There are Inclusive Play guidelines, written by Inclusive SA, which are well worth the read. They write, "Inclusive play is a topic close to the heart of South Australians, and we heard from over 235 people during our consultation period for Inclusive Play — including children and adults who live with disability, those who care for a child with disability — parents, guardians, carers and grandparents — and people who work in the sector.

We heard that inclusive play is important for everyone:

“All children should be able to access and play on an equal footing — so important for all socialisation”.
“...if people are aware that the space is for children with disabilities you are less likely to feel ostracised and isolated.”
“All abilities can play. All ages can play. Everyone’s included”.

When asked about what inclusive playspaces should be like, respondents said:

“Inclusive play spaces need to be about the needs of children and all potential carers, who may have impairment or age-related challenges themselves.”
“Play equipment that he can access independently in his walker.”
“Sensory equipment, walls with bumps and different textures, steering wheels, things to twist and turn. Buttons to press. Cause and effect-type thing.”
“Swings for children and adults (adults tend to have wide bottoms).”
“Make bigger slides. Way harder monkey bars!”
“Things that challenge them to try new skills such as balancing or climbing and give them a sense of achievement and accomplishment.”
“An area that provides a quiet retreat when overwhelmed by noise or sight of other people”.

Inclusive play enables everyone to connect with their surroundings, with other people and with themselves. 

What we see and feel every day varies from person to person and we all deserve the opportunity to CONNECT. When we have time to connect, we gain a better understanding of ourselves, each other and the world around us. 

Children gain important life skills via inclusive play, including collaboration, communication, and problem-solving, as well as empathy and a better understanding of variety.

Building toys are great for inclusive play. They encourage youngsters from many backgrounds to collaborate, be creative, and solve problems. 

 Building blocks are one kind of toy that performs well in inclusive play settings. Children of various ages and skills may have fun with these straightforward yet adaptable toys. Building blocks help kids develop their creativity, problem-solving abilities, and social skills. To accommodate youngsters who are visually challenged or non-verbal, they can also be customised with tactile components or symbols.

Children with various sensory demands can be catered to using sensory toys, which stimulate the senses through touch, sight, and sound. For all kids, they are welcoming and entertaining.

Children can explore their senses via open-ended, imaginative games during sensory play. It aids all kids by fostering their cognitive, fine motor, and emotional control development. Consider utilising adjustable tables or making sure that the materials are within reach of everyone to make it more accessible for kids with physical limitations. 

Board games promote teamwork, turn-taking, and strategic thinking. 

Books with varied topics and characters are essential instruments for crafting stories that encourage inclusiveness.

We support inclusion in part by providing products that address various sensory requirements. Some toys might be difficult for kids with sensory processing issues to interact with. And to accommodate differing sensory preferences, we offer toys with a range of textures, noises, and lights. Every youngster may take part completely in playtime and enjoy the delight of playing with toys.
