New Active Start Program Launches!

Special Olympics Burlington is proud to launch a brand new 8 week program for children with an intellectual disability aged 2-6!

The Active Start Program relies on the rationale that if children with intellectual disabilities are provided early instruction in the areas of basic motor skills and developmentally appropriate play, that there is an excellent opportunity for improvement in physical, social and cognitive abilities. By participating in weekly activities that focus on the basic motor skills of manipulation, transport, and balance, children will then gain perspective on their development skills.

Each child will be mentored 1:1 with a Special Olympic athlete – as well as Special Olympics coaches who will run the program.

If you are interested in registering your child or know someone who is, please contact Cate Hawkins callcoachcate@gmail.com.
