Now that we’re a few weeks into summer it’s the perfect time for doing things together as a family. One of the challenges special needs families face, though, is finding activities to include all of their children. Many activities are specifically for children with special needs or for children without special needs, but those often don’t accommodate special needs. So what can the family enjoy all together?
A playground for all abilities
Playgrounds can be a great way for children to have some fun and expend some energy. We have a wonderful inclusive playground right here in Findlay. Miracle Park features a playground with various slides and handicap-accessible equipment. It has a rubber surface which makes it safer for potential falls. The best part is, it appeals to children of all abilities. It allows for children with special needs to enjoy playground fun while offering fun for siblings as well!
Enjoying the park
Going to the park activities can be designed specifically to meet your family’s needs. The Hancock Park District offers a variety of parks with trails, beautiful scenery, picnic areas and so much more! Head to a park with a plan in mind and have fun with the family!
