Greenwood Public Library is proud to partner with Special Olympics Indiana to offer the Young Athletes program!
Special Olympics Young Athletes is a sport and play program for children with and without Intellectual Disabilities (ID). Through Young Athletes activities, children grow and develop in valuable motor skills, like walking and running, while also enhancing social and cognitive skills through interaction with their peers with and without ID. The opportunity for growth leads to a change in perception and a recognition for families of the value and worth of their child.
Check out a Young Athletes kit from Greenwood Public Library for fun, inclusive play at home! Each kit contains a deck of cards with over 60 activities, a badminton set, ball, bean bags, and scarves.
