Play for Children with Disabilities

This course is inspired by the training schools of the LUDI Network Play for children with disability (TD1309, www.ludi-network.eu), in which Dr. Pedro Encarnação has been Vice President. Play is crucial for child development. Through play children acquire motor, cognitive, language, and social skills. The vital role of play is universally recognized and play is a right enshrined in the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (Article 31) and in the United Nations Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (Article 30). These Conventions do not hierarchize rights and thus the right to play is affirmed in parallel to all other rights (e.g., health or education). Play has been widely studied and different narratives have been used to explain and justify play (Brian Sutton-Smith, a prominent scholar on play, identified seven “rethorics” of play: progress, fate, power, (community) identity, imaginary, self, and frivolity). Different disciplines have addressed play, each with her particular focus. For example, psychologists have studied different types of play and their relation to child development, educators have studied how play could foster the acquisition of new knowledge, engineers and designers have studied the characteristics of objects and environments that make them playful.

Addressed to

Play for children with disabilities should be addressed from a multi-disciplinary perspective since it involves the scientific areas of disability (impairments types, functioning characteristics), play (development, evaluation, rights), and environmental factors (tools, contexts, play situations and scenarios). Hence, having participants with different backgrounds (e.g., psychology, education, sociology, rehabilitation sciences, design, engineering, and computer science) would have an added value. Given the advanced nature of the theme and the goal of providing ready-to-use information with immediate application to professional practice, the course is better suited for graduated students with an interest in the area of child disability.


Objectives

General objectives

This short course aims at disseminating the knowledge and best practices on play for children with disabilities emerging from the joint effort of researchers, practitioners and users. Raising awareness on the importance of play for children with disabilities and providing participants with ready-to-use information that they can immediately apply in their professional practice, the course has the long-term objective of shedding the seeds of a cultural shift towards a society that ensures that all children can enjoy their right to play.

Specific objectives
  • That the participants recognize the game as a fundamental right.
  • That the participants understand what the game is and the ways to evaluate.
  • That the participants to identify models of assistive technology for children with disabilities.
  • That the participants identify the role of the adult and the communication in the game.
  • That participants evaluate games, toys and play spaces and their barriers and facilitators.
  • That the participants know the use of high technology for the game with children with disabilities.
  • That the participants recognize the principles of universal design to favor the game for all.
  • That the participants observe, evaluate and propose solutions mediated by technologies to promote the game in children with disabilities in real environments.


Methodology

The course comprises a theoretical and a practical part. The theoretical part takes the form of plenary lectures, usually taking place in the morning, and the practical part includes hands-on activities and a small project involving children with disabilities and their significant ones. For the practical part, participants will be split into multi-disciplinary groups (between 3 and 5 participants per group) that will be mentored by the lecturers. The different lecturers, with different backgrounds, will circulate between participants’ groups such that each group can have contact with the different perspectives coming from the different backgrounds each lecturer has. Each day will end with a plenary session in which the different groups will share their conclusions of the afternoon work.


Benefits

• Promote the game as a right.
• Generate a dialogue between different people interested in promoting children's games.
• Generate dialogue between academia and society around the game for children with disabilities.
• Motivate networks of cooperation in the game from the perspective of human rights.
