Special Olympics Chairman discusses making schools more inclusive for students with intellectual disabilities
For more than five decades, the Special Olympics has spearheaded a movement centered around inclusion and community.
Through sports, the organization has championed adults and children with intellectual disabilities by ensuring they are seen, heard and given equitable opportunities to compete in sports and thrive.
Special Olympics’ advocacy work expands beyond the playing field into the community and classroom.
On Thursday’s edition of “Closer Look,” Timothy Shriver, a disability rights advocate and the chairman of the Special Olympics, explains how his organization is working to make sure schools in Georgia and across the world are more inclusive and that they have the infrastructure, resources and tools to support students with intellectual disabilities.
