We are delighted that our new Communication Board at Oxford Island has had such a positive impact on those using it. We now have plans to install another 15 Communication Boards at play parks across the borough – coming soon!
|Cathedral Road Playing Fields
|Kingston Memorial Playing Fields
|Kernan Play Park
|Lord Lurgan Park
|Markethill Primary School
The boards have pictures that can be used to share messages along with pictures of things in the play park, action words, feelings, and words that can be used to request, such as ‘more’.
We are using everything in our communication toolbox, including pictures, gestures, signs, and words, to get our message across. Everyone should have a go at using our new communication boards and experience this new way to share messages!

An inclusive springer seesaw has been installed in Oxford Island Play Park – one of the first of its kind in NI – which encourages children to play together including those with a wide range of disabilities. This park also features braille and sensory play learning opportunities.
