Realising disabled children’s rights in play provision – new info sheet
To celebrate World Children’s Day (20 November), we are publishing our latest information sheet – Play provision: realising disabled children’s rights. Written by Theresa Casey, it offers information and practical suggestions with the goal of creating opportunities for disabled children to realise their right to play.
All children, including disabled children, have a right to play. Play providers and people who work for and with children have important roles in ensuring that right is respected, protected and fulfilled. This information sheet is anchored in a children’s human rights approach and the Playwork Principles.
It is suitable for play providers and playworkers whose primary purpose is facilitating play, and organisations and people for whom supporting play is part of what they do.
Theresa is a consultant and writer on play, inclusion and children’s rights, and co-author of Free to Play: a guide to creating accessible and inclusive public play spaces.
