I teach an inclusion pre-school class for Albemarle County and I am confident that an all-abilities play space would be beneficial for children and adults of all abilities.  One of the most powerful forces of growth and development that I’ve seen in my class is when my students with typical abilities (and their parents) initiate and sustain genuine relationships with children who have exceptionalities.  An all-abilities play space would provide a natural, community space for this to happen on a daily basis.  What an important way to build up our community and celebrate the diversity of our residents!  Marie Decker, ECSE Teacher
