The aim of this study was to examine the staffs' experience of play and participation in the schoolyard for pupils' with physical disabilities at special schools.For the study, was chosen a qualitative approach in which data were collected through semi-structured interviews. Eleven members of staff working in special school were interviewed. The collected material was analyzed using qualitative content analysis, which resulted in three categories. These categories were Schoolyard design affects the ability to play, Committed staff enables participation, Pupils participate in the play on their own terms.The results showed that customized schoolyards facilitated for both staff and pupils' but the most important factor in pupils' opportunities for play and participation was the staffs' commitment. The staff allowed the play and participation of pupils by finding alternative activities and by helping students with movements to and from various play equipment. The pupils' development level and physical disabilities varied and they participated in the game on their own terms. In summary, the the interaction between activity, individual and environment is essential for pupils opportunities for play and participation in the schoolyard.
