Dana voiceover: When you get kids together they don’t look at kids differently and they are just going out and playing. It doesn’t matter if one child is in a wheelchair and one child is not. They are going out and they are all playing together in the same space. And it has just been amazing to see that they forget about everything that’s going on in their lives and they’re just being kids and they’re just playing.

Camera is placed at the entrance of an inclusive wheelchair playground ramp. Two children play up on the playground decking at the top of the ramp. Camera zooms in on a woman’s hand as she latches the Bucket swing harness. The woman pulls the Bucket swing back with a young boy sitting on it. His arms barely reach the swing ropes to hold on. The woman pushes the boy, so he glides down the ZipKrooz bay past the camera. Camera switches to outside the Cozy Dome.
