Free PDH of the Month

ASLA continues to offer one on-demand webinar each month at no cost to all current members! Members must register for the Free PDH of the Month and pass the exam during the month it is featured in order to earn professional development hours.

In July, we are featuring:

Magical Inclusion: Creating a Kinder, Healthier Place to Live and Play - 1.0 PDH (LA CES/HSW) Leveraging the innovative (and kind) spirit of Silicon Valley, Magical Bridge Foundation presents a new model to provide truly inclusive playgrounds and healthier public play spaces for all, regardless of ability, disability, size, or age. With more than 25,000 visitors per month flocking to Palo Alto to play, Magical Bridge is heralded as the nation’s most inclusive play space, with worldwide interest in replicating their model. In this session, the founders of the foundation will give insight into their success, expansion throughout the Bay Area (and the nation), and the extensive community they serve, including those living with physical and cognitive disabilities, autism, visual and auditory impairments, the medically fragile, and the aging population. Learn about their process and guidelines for success and understand how they infuse Silicon Valley innovation into inclusive playground design.
