This Primary resource, Designing Everyone In, promotes learning opportunities for inclusive design to be incorporated into the teaching of design and technology in schools. It looks at how inclusive design and management of the built environment and transport services can help disabled people to fully participate in society.
The resources were developed by the Disabled Persons Transport Advisory Committee. Disabled people are often prevented from fully participating in society by the poor design. Even today, services are designed for fit able-bodied adults. This is a problem for everyone, not just disabled people. All of us, at one time or other, will travel with heavy luggage, a baby in a buggy, or a leg injury. It is vital that tomorrow's engineers, designers, architects, planners etc have a full understanding of the need for an inclusive environment.
The resource consists of teacher notes; adapted units of work for Playgrounds, Homes, Shelters and Fairgrounds with supporting PowerPoint presentations for each; and ‘A Day in the Life – a presentation looking at a day in a life of one person, with photos taken every hour, and questions about what can be deduced about that person. There are links to useful resources and websites and with the National Curriculum.
