Play for Life: Exploring the Lifelong Benefits of Inclusive Play

| 0 Comments


Play brings families, friends and communities together; it keep us fit and makes us smile. Research shows that play is a key element of development and health for individuals of all ages and abilities. Unfortunately, play is being threatened on every front in the U.S. It's seen as a "children-only" activity, if it's thought about at all. Furthermore, concerns around inclusive play are primarily discussed among disability experts and are not part of most community agendas. 

Please join our nation's leading inclusive play experts for a thought-provoking, two-day symposium that examines the importance of play for all ages and abilities. Play for Life: Exploring the Lifelong Benefits of Inclusive Play will reignite your passion for play and inspire new ways to bring that passion to everyone in the community.
