Special Olympics is founded on the belief that people with learning disabilities can, with proper instruction and
encouragement, learn, enjoy, and benefit from participation in individual and team sports. These sports must be
adapted only as necessary to meet the needs of those with mental and physical limitations.
Special Olympics believe that consistent training is indispensable to the development of an individual's sports
skills. In addition, competition among those of equal abilities is the most appropriate means of testing these
skills, measuring progress, and providing incentives for personal growth.
