Innovative Leaders in Inclusive Play and Education Since 1998

Children with disabilities frequently face exclusion from play, peer interactions, and social networks, leading to detrimental effects on their life trajectories.  In response to this critical need, Inclusion Matters has spent a quarter century ensuring that no child is left on the sidelines of play.  Through collaborative partnerships across five continents, this life-altering mission is leveling the playing field between children with disabilities and their peers for millions of children throughout the world.

 

Our Mission

Inclusion Matters by Shane’s Inspiration is dedicated to creating play, dignity, and social equity for children with disabilities through inclusive playgrounds and education programs that unite children of all abilities worldwide.
