As part of the Access and Inclusion Model, AIM Inclusive Play is a set of resources to support inclusive practice within pre-school settings. These resources, which include equipment, toys and materials, also support the development of coordination and audio, visual and tactile skills among all children, and in particular, children with a disability.
Many elements of Siolta and Aistear can also be supported by the effective use of these resources. AIM Inclusive Play reinforces an important message- that children’s play is a vital ingredient of childhood, essential for both growth and learning and an integral element of high quality pre-school provision.
Pre-school practitioners are encouraged to engage with and reflect on how these resources can be best used with children in their own setting. The AIM Inclusive Play website has information and video clips on key learning and the resources and suggested starting points for engagement.
