Special Olympics Brisbane West is one of the many Special Olympics programs around Australia transforming the lives of people with an intellectual disability through regular sport, competition and personal development. Our focus is on helping all people with an intellectual disability reach their personal best, regardless of their skills.
Brisbane West thanks the Queensland Government for providing funding to conduct a series of sports programs in a number of Special Schools, concluding with a Gala Day and also providing funding to aid our volunteers.

Special Olympics And My Son
When Berenice’s eldest son was diagnosed with Autism, doctors told her to put him in an institution. If Berenice had listened, Brandon wouldn’t be a medal-winning Special Olympics athlete and a typical teenager doing what typical teenagers do.
It took years of love and perseverance to get where they are now, but being part of the Special Olympics family has made a huge difference to their lives.
