Accessible Recreation

As important as work and daily living are to us as humans, so is play. Age and disability can affect our ability to fully participate in the activities we enjoy, but with Assistive Technology and awareness of accessibility, the barriers to entry can be lowered providing equal opportunity to find joy in our pastimes.
