How to make recreation more accessible

I believe that when we talk about making recreation more accessible we need to keep in mind that recreation is important to everyone, not just the mainstream person and if we keep this in mind then the rest will come easier to those who are responsible for making recreation accessible to those with a disability.

If you are the one in charge of designing accessible recreational programs then I have some tips to get you started.

  1. In most instances, a potential participant who has a disability will need assistance when participating.
  2. Make sure to ask and fully understand the needs and requirements of the potential participant.
  3. Make sure also to fully explain the type of recreational program that you are offering to the potential participant.
  4. Be prepared to make adjustments to your program in order to accommodate the potential participant.
  5. If for some reason you strongly believe that you are unable to do this, then be prepared to offer reasons to the potential participant that are sound and logical.
  6. Encourage the potential participant to engage with you to develop solutions and alternatives.

This should be a good start for you.
