HOW IT MAKES A DIFFERENCE

Through Young Athletes, children learn how to play with others, learn to share, take turns and follow directions. These skills will help children in family, community and school activities.

DESCRIPTION

Special Olympics Young Athletes is an inclusive sport and play program for children with and without intellectual disabilities (ID), ages 2 to 7 years old.
