Resources for Inclusive Play

We believe everyone should have the opportunity to play! With October being Inclusion month, here are 3 resources to inspire and support welcoming and inclusive recreation.

These and other great materials are available borrow FREE from our Resource Centre.

From Indigenous Communities across Canada, HIGH FIVE® has collected traditional games and activities in a quick reference.  Each activity includes: age range, equipment and space needed, number of participants, and instructions on how to play.

Appropriate for children of any age or placement on the autism spectrum, this guide shares a range of indoor and outdoor activities as well as numerous group and one-on-one suggestions designed to improve motor functions, social skills, and cognitive development.

Barbara Sher, an expert occupational therapist and teacher, has written a handy resource filled with games to play with young children who have Autistic Spectrum Disorder or other sensory processing disorders.

The games are designed to help children feel comfortable in social situations and teach other basic lessons including beginning and end, spatial relationships, hand-eye coordination, and more. 

Also included are a variety of interactive games to play in water, whether in a backyard kiddie pool, community swimming pool, or lake.
