Safety

The physical, psychological and social safety of the individual are important environmental factors in any play setting. Games and activities should challenge all children but awareness about current limitations need to be understood by both the facilitator and the individual. Kids in particular need to know how far they can go today and challenge that in a way that doesn't put them or others in harms way. 

Safety considerations when using specialized equipment should be reviewed with all participants when reviewing safety rules for each activity.  Equipment should be checked regularly to ensure the safety of all participants, specifically the sport wheelchairs should be checked each session before use.
