Occupational injustice refers to a setting or situations that can restrict a person in performing an occupation. Because a playground is a setting that can restrict children with disabilities from the occupation of playing, this paper frames playground accessibility in terms of occupational justice. This study interviewed 18 parents of children with disabilities about their children's experiences with playgrounds. Examining playgrounds from an occupational justice perspective can be a means to advocate for accessible playgrounds as a first step towards helping children with disabilities participate in play activities in this environment.
