About the C2D Program at WDS 2020
The Chance 2 Dance Lounge will be a fully inclusive and accommodative experience for children, youth, and adults with varying needs and disabilities. Each participant will have a 1-1 buddy/volunteer that will be lead by a team leader who is 'Inclusion and Special Needs' Certified.
There will be 4 focused zones for participants to interact and immerse themselves in.
Each zone has been specifically and intentionally designed to accommodate a variety of needs- we aim to create a welcoming atmosphere in a safe space with people who value and embrace your loved ones.
The Quiet Zone will be separated from the rest of the Summit Sensory Room. It will be a safe outlet for when the individuals feel overwhelmed. This room will be separated from the other lounge zones. It will have multiple textured seating options, sensory- stimuli shag carpets, weighted blankets, headphones, aroma therapy, soothing sounds, and multi colored light fixtures.
The Sensory Zone will provide a large variety of sensory friendly toys that will help with stress relief, enhance focus and creativity, and provide a calming, soothing and relaxing place for participants with disabilities. This area can provide relief from the child being overwhelmed or experiencing sensory overload. Playing with the specially-designed toys will help relieve anxiety and promote clarity.
Assistive technology makes things possible. We all benefit from technology, but some people with disabilities require technology to participate, show what they know, or be more independent. The Interactive Zone offers plenty of room for creative activities with iPads and appropriate Apps, switch activated and lifesize toys, as well as a TV for movies.
The Proprioceptive Zone is a space that allows participants to explore at their own ‘speed’. This area focuses on vestibular activities and creative expression, including all physically interactive elements: tumbling mats, crash mats, trampolines, ball pits, and physical manipulatives to enhance movement and participation and appropriate behavioral responses.
