The figure depicted on the front cover is an illustration of a model containing key components of inclusive leisure services for people with disabilities presented in this book. An icon commonly representing people with disabilities is located at the center of the figure to communicate that the model is person-centered.

Since inclusion involves people feeling safe, welcome, respected, and valued in their home, community, country, and wherever they might travel across the world, circles with these words surround the icon. Stars circling people within their various environments represent strategies facilitating inclusive leisure services. This model emphasizes the importance of applying ethical standards to help us focus on promoting inclusion and helping people achieve the goal of experiencing the wonders of leisure.

In addition, the model encourages practitioners to use inclusive language, exceed the ADA, address people’s unique challenges to experiencing leisure, and use assistive technologies. Ultimately, we provide inclusive leisure services to encourage all people to experience leisure and happiness as they flourish in their homes, communities, country, and throughout the world.
