I understand that disability can be daunting in terms of attending private functions at people’s homes because of issues of accessibility. So why do these parties have to be at others homes I mean if your house is set up to meet the person who has a disability why not be the host? The children playing with others may be physically easier for them
Growing up, I always preferred when my parents would host gatherings because the environment was set up to meet my needs. This meant, for example that I could use the washroom independently. In my case it also meant that playing was generally easier because my parents’ house is all one level. To me, this made play and general social inclusion easier.
You may wondering why the layout of my parents’ house increased social inclusion? I was obviously slower moving up and down the stairs especially when i was a child this was a source of frustration as I struggled to keep up
what would make social inclusion easier for your child with a disability? Do you notice a difference when you host a party verses when you take your child to a party about their level of interaction in terms of play?
