This book identifies organisational, social and physical barriers to disabled children's inclusion in primary school playgrounds, and suggests ways to overcome these barriers in the future, as well as examining examples of good practice. This is essential reading for teachers, special educational needs coordinators, personal support assistants, lunchtime supervisors, playworkers, and architects and landscape professionals involved in play. It will also be of interest to those involved in children's oral history and folklore.
