Education

Special Olympics Ireland is committed to developing a greater understanding of people with disabilities amongst the general public. As part of this commitment we have developed various education programmes including the following:

  1. Our Schools Programme offers materials for use in Primary Schools and also a programme for Transition Year at second level.
  2. The Special Olympics Law Enformcement (S.O.L.E.) programme is a joint venture between Special Olympics, An Garda Síochána and the Police Service of Northern Ireland which has been incorporated into the training curriculum for new recruits in the forces.
  3. Volunteer training ensures that all of our volunteers receive an introduction to working with people with disabilities and background knowledge about Special Olympics.
