Description: Working with Special Olympics through the Public School System can lead to GOLD. You are providing for that child an opportunity that can last a life time, beyond school and beyond his/her geographic world. Learn to create a program that will: 1) empower students through curriculum and competition; 2) endear your program to Special Ed teachers through the use of IEP in goal setting, and 3) riders that bring home the GOLD or a golden experience, while the program is paid for by Special Olympics.
