Special Olympics BC offers three programs designed to help children with intellectual disabilities to develop basic motor and sport skills through fun and positive movement experiences.
"Special Olympics BC's Active Start program fills a void in our son's life. He loves playing with the equipment, and it is gratifying to see the confidence he is gaining both physically and mentally as he achieves goals and does things he couldn't do before. We look forward to sharing future accomplishments with Active Start."
- James Sutherland, parent of former Active Start and current FUNdamentals participant Oliver
