Young Athletes

Young Athletes


The Special Olympics Young Athletes program applies cutting edge research on social, neurological and cognitive development to create play activities for children, their families and their communities in Vermont. For children with intellectual disabilities ages two through seven, Young Athletes introduces the world of Special Olympics by engaging them in developmentally appropriate play activities. In Vermont, Young Athletes programs come to life in community centers and in collaboration with universities where the joy of play and the therapeutic power of activity not only support the development of children with intellectual disabilities, but also highlight their potential.
