Mrs. Beckman from Chesaning MI is requesting Lab Equipment through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Wheelchair Accessible Early Childhood Outdoor Playset

Help me give my students with physical impairments an outdoor area to play with their peers!

My Students

The classroom of students who would benefit from this request is for children with disabilities ages 2 1/2 to 6 years old. The Early Childhood Special Education (ECSE) classroom is designed to support students with a variety of impairments, including physical disabilities. There are currently two classrooms in the ECSE program, serving up to 24 students in our district and neighboring districts.

Currently, the ECSE classroom lacks playground equipment suitable for students who use wheelchairs or have other physical impairments.

Another preschool classroom has been kind to let the classroom borrow a small play structure for recess activities. However, the equipment is not accessible to wheelchair-bound students.

My Project

The Early Childhood Special Education program would greatly benefit from outdoor activities for students in need of wheelchair accessible play structures. This project would allow socialization, development of play and communication skills, and equality for the students in the program. While outdoors, students with impairments would be able to join in recess activities with peers, promoting their development.

Allowing accessible play for all students would be so impactful for the ECSE classroom as it would open the doors for student engagement at recess!

The requested play structure would afford wheelchair-bound and students with physical impairments equal play opportunities at recess.
