Playgrounds for disabled children
Filed under: Development/Milestones: Babies
Boundless Playgrounds give children with visual, motor and attention disabilities somewhere to play. The playgrounds are designed with the special needs of disabled children in mind. Hexagonal stools of various heights help those with Down's Syndrome build balancing skills. Rubber mats let children using wheelchairs and walkers get right up to equipment. Jeb Bush would like to see 50 of the playgrounds in Florida. The 80th Boundless Playground opened in Michigan today. We have a Boundless Playground near our home and not only is it extremely safe for toddlers and small children, it's also a great place for my 4 and 7-year-old children to meet and understand what having a disability is about. Playing together takes away some of the fear of children who are different.
