Experts agree that children with disabilities are like all other children – to progress they need to develop their cognitive, psychomotor and social skills, as well as their independence. They want to enjoy themselves like everyone else, with everyone else.

At Proludic inclusion has always been a key aspect of our philosophy. We believe that all children should have access to the same play facilities.

As a provider of playgrounds for over 25 years, Proludic has developed considerable expertise in disability and inclusion. We are now taking our approach a step further: as a member of NovaCHILD, a network dedicated to innovation for the well-being of children, Proludic have committed to working with its experts, which include researchers, health professionals, universal design specialists, and support associations for children with special needs.

Together we have identified the specific features and special needs of less able children in play areas, and measures that can be taken to compensate for differences and ensure accessibility for all.

The data resulting from this work has been included in our new INCLUSIVE PLAY AREAS GUIDE that designers can refer to every time they want to design an accessible play area. We have provided data on various challenges facing children and describe specific features, needs and possible solutions for creating a successful inclusive play area.

Information which highlights the inclusive play functions and benefits of items of Proludic play equipment will help designers select the right play equipment for inclusive play areas.
