Everyone Deserves to Swing!
My students need adaptive swing for our playground for our students with special needs.
At our elementary we have a Center based program for students with severe mental and physical disabilities. Although they enjoy complete inclusion through out the day, we are in need of some adaptive equipment on our play ground.
Our swings are too high for our students with disabilities and are not safe or secure for them.
Many of our regular educational students ask me if we could get them a special swing so their friends with disabilities could enjoy the swings like they do. It warmed my heart to hear these children advocating for their friends at school.
Our school is conducting a "kindness " campaign and I think the gesture of these children to help their friends enjoy recess is the definition of kindness. I hope others in the community feel the same.
This swing will allow our students with disabilities feel safe in secure when they swing. It will also be easy to get them in and out of the swing. The swings we have now are too high and many of our students can't hold the chains. They are not feeling included in recess. This would be so wonderful for them.
Many of our regular education students have asked me if we could get the swing for their friends with disabilities.
They see that the swings we have are not working.
Please consider helping us out. Our whole school will benefit from offering everyone a chance to have fun on recess and SWING!
