Impact & Outcomes

Playground Development Research

When Dr. Alice Moore, Lecturer and Researcher at UCC School of Occupational Therapy, began research into designing the Playground and Leisure space, it was obvious that families’ needs would direct it. She describes how this can be a blueprint for future inclusive playgrounds.

Dr. Alice Moore and Dr. Helen Lynch won the Ann Beckett Award for demonstrating the core principles of Occupational Therapy in practice for their work on our Accessible Playground & Leisure Area.
