Metro Parks add “Point and Play” Banner at Two Rivers Park

I want to thank Donelson neighbor Amanda Moss for reaching out and educating me about how communication can be extremely difficult for non-speaking children. They may not have acquired the reading skills to communicate, or don’t have access to AAC (Augmentative and Alternative Communication) devices, especially at parks.  So, I reached out to Metro Parks about her suggestion of including a “Point and Play” banner to Two Rivers Park playground so that everyone will have a way to communicate their needs.  I’m thankful to Metro Parks for agreeing to purchase this banner (shown below) as a pilot program.  So, if you see this banner, thanks go to Amanda for her advocacy to help ensure our Parks are welcoming and engaging for all our children.
