Special Olympics school and youth programs build a credible connection for teachers, parents and advocates who wish to activate children and youth who have intellectual disabilities.
The program focus is to facilitate sports training, education and athletic competitions for students who have intellectual disabilities, while building awareness and linkages for non-disabled students. Teachers include Special Olympics in their physical education curriculum, while registering student athletes with Special Olympics.
