One of the greatest challenges faced by people with an intellectual disability is getting others to see past the disability. Together we can overcome this barrier by teaching the importance of acceptance, understanding and open mindedness. Special Olympics Australia believes playing together is a quick path to friendship and understanding. To support this principle, we are partnering with mainstream schools and those with specialist education facilities to play sport. Please get in touch if your school would like to get involved.
