Parkequip to host Inclusive Play Webinar
May 26, 2023

Leading play equipment and splash pad supplier Parkequip is to set to host a webinar on inclusive play space design.

Being held at 10am on 31st May 2023, the webinar Innovation is Invitation, is being conducted by Jill Moore CPSI, an inclusive play specialist for landscape structures.

Amid increasing awareness of the importance of inclusive play space design and with growing knowledge around inclusive design and disability has grown, the webinar will take an in-depth look at designing more intentionally for mobility devices, creating experiences for ADHD and other common motor coordination disabilities, and improving wayfinding for blind/low vision users.

Participants will receive an introduction to DeafScape design, as well as how we can support medically complex individuals who come to play.

Parkequip advise “we understand that innovation is driven by those who are invited to participate, and the next step in play is to truly invite everyone to make our spaces that much more meaningful.”
