Inviting Whole Families to Play
It is often difficult for families with both typical kids and special needs kids to find places where the whole family can play together. Children want to join their siblings, cousins, and friends with unique abilities, but co-play can be a challenge for families whose children (or adults) have diverse skill sets and levels of independence. Panelists will discuss the distinct efforts toward full-family inclusion—through mission, exhibit design, programming, or all three—their institutions have made to ensure that all kids can play and learn, and that they can do it together. Attendees will learning strategies to expand their museums’ reach and make an even greater impact on the whole families of their communities.
