놀 곳 없는 장애 아동들, 어른들의 편견 탓 
Disabled children have no place to play, due to the prejudices of adults.

지적 장애를 가진 11살 아름이는 “놀 곳”이 없습니다. 아름이가 마음 편히 뛰어 놀 수 있는 놀이
터를 찾아서 아름이 어머니는 매일 한 시간씩 차를 타고 한 장애인 종합 복지관의 실내 놀이터를
찾습니다. 전국 6만 여개 놀이터 중 처음부터 장애 아동이 이용할 수 있도록 설계·조성된 “무장애 놀이터”는 3곳에 불과합니다. 비장애 아동과 “함께” 어울리기는 더 어렵습니다. 장애 아동을 염두해 설치된 놀이 시설은 비장애 아동의 흥미를 끌기엔 지나치게 단순합니다. 또한 “장애 아동을 바라보는 불편한 시선과 편견이 만들어 내는 차별이 취학 전 놀이터에서부터 이들을 분리해 “장벽”을 만드는 게 우리의 현실”이라고 한 전문가는 지적했습니다.

A-reum, an 11-year old who has intellectual disabilities, has no place “to play”. To go to a playground where A-reum can comfortably play around, A-reum’s mother visits the indoor playground in a welfare center for disabled people every single day, which is an hour away by car. Out of more than 60,000 playgrounds throughout the country, there are only 3 “barrier-free playgrounds” that were designed and built from the beginning so that disabled children can use them. It is even more difficult to play “together” with children with no disabilities. The playing facilities installed with disabled children in mind is way too simple to attract the interest of children without disabilities. An expert also pointed that “our reality is that the discrimination that is made by the uncomfortable gaze and prejudices toward disabled children creates a “barrier” by separating these children even from pre-school playgrounds.”

  1. First of all, thanks for the hard work to keep a blog like this! I found out a couple of weeks ago, and I've been addicted to this blog since then!
    By the way, I noticed that the dedicated "audio" box has no audio of the article. I would really love if I could listen to it.
    Thank you! 🙂
