Play Lab at Kaikorai Valley College, Dunedin

Play Lab is a tool using universal design for teachers, teacher aides and learning assistants to support students to learn through movement, with a focus on tamariki whaikaha (disabled children) to find their strengths and improve confidence in all learning contexts. Sport NZ's Disability Inclusion Fund is supporting Sport Otago to introduce Play Lab to 15 schools across Otago. Play Lab has proved a valuable tool for managing behavioural challenges and for able-bodied learners who become disengaged with traditional learning. A major outcome is seeing Play Lab foster inclusion of all students within unstructured and free play.
