AllPlay Deakin University - Leap in!

AllPlay Deakin University

AIIPlay is an initiative of the Deakin Child Study Centre, Deakin University. AllPlay is about creating free online resources and inclusive environments for children of all abilities wherever they learn, play, dance and engage in the community. Our mission is making the world fit for all kids.

AllPlay is a national project to enable children with developmental challenges, such as ASD, ADHD, cerebral palsy, language disorders and intellectual disabilities, to access education, dance, sport and team activities. The project includes developing resources for children, coaches and parents, and the creation of an internationally significant research database.

AllPlay Footy, AllPlay Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Footy, AllPlay Dance and AllPlay Learn aim to make sport, dance and education a safe and inclusive space for children with developmental challenges.

The AllPlay programs are supported by a digital platform that leverages the power of web, app, wearables, gaming, virtual reality, social media and software engineering to optimise AllPlay research.

How: We combine research, clinical expertise and technology with like-minded partners
and peak bodies to create evidence-based, accessible and innovative resources.

What: We provide online resources to organisations, teachers, coaches, health professionals, parents, kids and the community to include all children, especially the 1 in 5 with a disability or developmental challenge.
We promote inclusion, social change and the optimum life-course for all.
