I congratulate all those who worked so hard to help make playgrounds accessible. Now that the major aspects of that fight have been written into Federal Code, what is the next step?Gametime design #85297
I believe the focus should now turn to how playgrounds need to be designed and retrofitted to enhance inclusiveness. Frankly, while the ADA has been enacted, in my personal experience, I do not see a significant improvement in children of all abilities playing together. Wasn’t that the whole point? This situation isn’t helped by the trend of children in general going to playgrounds less and less.
I have a few ideas that I’d like to share but I’d like your thoughts on this issue before I expose too many ideas.
