Even Calvin can Play 2!!
We believe that compassionate adults are made. They were children who were taught compassion through exposure. This trait can not be learned in a book; only through meaningful interactions and knowledge will the future generations realize that there are more similarities than differences shared between us all. We all have the same needs: food, shelter, clothing, education, love, acceptance, and acknowledgement are some. Children with different abilities really do not have ”special“ needs at all — they are really the same needs as everybody else. Some individuals may need to adapt certain things to meet their needs. Just because they do things differently does not mean they cannot do it. Children that are exposed to other children that are differently abled can take this understanding and compassion throughout their lives, and apply it in their daily thoughts and actions going forward. Ideally, accessibility and inclusion will not be overlooked through the eyes of the adult with the inclusive exposure, because they understand that we are all are so perfectly different and yet so similar. This will perhaps make the gaps and cracks in our system much tighter, pertaining to persons with disabilities.
We feel strongly that it should not be considered a “luxury” for some children to be able to learn, explore and PLAY in their community... it is their RIGHT to say “I CAN PLAY 2”!!!
