Our son just participated in a state-wide basketball tournament in Normal, IL, where Special Olympics Illinois is based. While we were there, we learned about the broad range of sports and recreation programs that SO offers children and adults of all ages and abilities. We discovered, for example, that some programs are designed for those with more profound disabilities, and emphasize participation rather than competition. Other programs are designed for those who want to compete with peers in individual sports or team sports. Unified Sports, is an SO program that combines approximately equal numbers of SO and non-SO athletes of similar age and ability on teams that compete with one another. SO literature makes it clear that the skills developed in SO programs can lead to participation in community-based programs as well as continued participation in SO programs. It's up to the individual!
