Beyond Sports

Research shows people with intellectual disabilities receive sub-standard health care or virtually no health care at all. This population is at a higher risk than the general population in many health areas. That's why Special Olympics DC provides access to health services and free health screenings.

Special Olympics Young Athletes™ is an early-intervention program designed to develop motor skills and social interactions for children ages 2-7 with intellectual disabilities.
