Interactive Playgrounds: Designed for Inclusive and Multigenerational Play

David Flanigan, Director of Sales, Yalp Inc.

Playing outside should be available for everyone, children with or without a disability, players young and old, different nationalities, languages, preferences, or users’ needs. It should be truly inclusive. However, there are different approaches to providing play opportunities for people of all abilities and ages. Therefore, it’s important to consider accessibility, inclusion, and interactivity in playspace design. Accessible Design complies with accessibility guidelines, while inclusion aims to fulfill all users’ needs in one playspace. Inclusive Playspaces are designed to be usable by all people, to the greatest extent possible, without adaptation or specialized design. Further, developing interactive games for specific target groups offer great play experiences and is aimed toward player preferences. In the same way, different players like various genres of games.

Designing for inclusivity starts with clear definitions. Creating clear distinctions between the different approaches and design philosophies makes it much easier to talk about inclusion and design for inclusion. It is essential to have inclusive design principles that are up-to-date and match the new insights. These design principles will ensure that inclusion is part of any new project, game, product, or complete playground.

Learning objectives

  • Participants will be able to understand the barriers to play for people with disabilities.
  • Participants will be able to understand the definition of inclusive play.
  • Participants will be able to analyze the key design principles for inclusive play using interactive playgrounds
  • Participants will be able to evaluate opportunities to create inclusive playspaces using interactive playgrounds
