Common Playgrounds

Common Playgrounds is an interactive disability sensitivity program for elementary and middle school-aged students. The program spoofs various game shows and is broken into segments:

Common Playgrounds is presented by a troupe of people with and without disabilities. The goal is to reduce stereotypes, and to show children that people with disabilities are capable of doing and achieving anything.

This program is perfect for schools, youth groups, summer camp programs, and the like. Common Playgrounds can also be offered in a Q&A/Discussion format for small groups or classrooms, if that if preferred. This lets kids get "up close and personal" with people with disabilities and ask the tough questions. Nothing is taboo!
