All children, including those with disabilities, need to play in order to develop essential life skills. An increasing number of children with disabilities attend mainstream early childhood settings, and need equal opportunities to participate in the full range of activities and experiences on offer, and to develop a sense of belonging in their local community. This article outlines practical strategies to support the inclusion of children with sensory, physical, intellectual, social or emotional disabilities and to adapt activities so that all children can play.
