SO ARMENIA CELEBRATED INTERNATIONAL DAY OF PERSONS WITH DISABILITIES

 


On December 3, 2011, Special Olympics Armenia conducted an SO Young Athletes sports play program event in Yerevan, Armenia. This Unified event funded by the Mattel Children’s Foundation Grant, took place at Yerevan inclusive school # 27 on the International Day of Persons with Disabilities, and involved youth of ages 6-8 years old. Volunteers assisting the event organization mainly came from the Armenian State Institute of Physical Education.

 

Prior to the event, there was an awareness raising seminar for targeted young athletes’ parents. Trainings for newly recruited young athletes were followed by competitions. The event engaged children with intellectual disabilities through developmentally appropriate play activities designed to foster physical, cognitive, and social development.
