Four in ten parents told us their disabled children ‘rarely’ or ‘never’ have the opportunity to socialise and mix with children who are not disabled.
We want parents and families living with disability to know that disabled and non-disabled children can easily play together. You don’t need expensive specialist toys for disabled children. You can adapt everyday objects, such as making a puppet from a wooden spoon, or even a cardboard box.
Scope has developed a new set of tips with childcare experts to help families and early years workers to find lots of great ways to all play and have fun together.
The tips are free and available to everyone on the Scope website now. So for games all children can play, click on the follow link to access it: http://www.scope.org.uk/games
Please note: supervision is essential. Don't let children play alone with homemade toys.
Scope exists to make this country a place where disabled people have the same opportunities as everyone else. Until then, we'll be here. We provide support, information and advice to more than a quarter of a million disabled people and their families every year. We raise awareness of the issues that matter. And with your support, we'll keep driving change across society until this country is great for everyone.
