Our online learning platform, SOA Learn, will help students grow and enhance skills and abilities to mentor people with intellectual disabilities and autism, and provide them with greater sporting opportunities. An SOA Learn student may be a coach, teacher, family member, volunteer, or someone simply charged up to change others’ lives and their own!
The tailored online courses and resources allow the flexibility to study when and where students want. Our courses have been developed with key partners within the wider sectors of sport, disability and education and use current research and methodology in a combination of video, case studies and questions.
Our courses provide students with the basic principles, techniques and tools to effectively coach, teach and mentor Special Olympics athletes and people with intellectual disabilities and autism. Education is necessary and mandatory. Our athletes deserve the most knowledgeable guidance from people who are trained, who can access sport-specific coaching guides and rules, who provide the safest environment in which to train and compete and who receive ongoing education.
To access the courses, you just need to create an account in SOA Learn and start learning. Creating an SOA Learn account is free.
