Well, today I did not have to battle the plastic slides. There is a non-profit organization in the St. Louis area called Unlimited Play and they have designed and built three all-accessible playgrounds throughout the area. There are many great features to these playgrounds for children with various disabilities, including metal slides for kids with CIs!
We visited Brendan's Playground on this afternoon and as we pulled into the parking lot, Sophie said, "Playground? Swings? Slide? Take the ears off!"
Nope, not this time, sweetheart. How refreshing, right?! She was able to HEAR and PLAY until her little heart was content:
Guess what else? Construction has started on the fourth Unlimited Play playground in the area- right down the street from us! :)
