Playgrounds For Everyone
A comprehensive database of inclusive and accessible playgrounds does not yet exist, but you can help create one. National Public Radio (NPR) is working to create a community guide to accessible playgrounds throughout the U.S. New federal requirements define playground accessibility as a civil right. And under those rules, playgrounds built or altered after March 14, 2012, are required to have wheelchair-friendly surfaces and equipment that helps kids with physical challenges move around. Add to the database and see what have been identified thus far here: Accessible Playgrounds.
The Utah Parent Center provides workshops, conferences and presentations addressing a number of topics important to families of individuals with disabilities. For more details: Utah Parent Center Upcoming Events
Professionals can attend but priority is given to parents/familes.
Please read the March 2015 issue of our quarterly newsletter, The Portal Periodical.
