New Guide for Families of Young Children with ID

By Charita Boseman

Special Olympics has published a new guide for families with young children with intellectual disabilities. 

Realizing the Bright Future of Your Child with an Intellectual Disability” is especially valuable for families soon after they get the news that their child has an intellectual disability. The 28-page PDF guide outlines treatments, therapies, supports and services that can help a child with ID reach their potential throughout their life. 

Programs can share this guide to support new parents and to introduce Special Olympics and the Young Athletes program.
