Alain Deletoille, National Director of Special Olympics
France emphasised the importance of the Young Athlete Program for children with intellectual disabilities and their families."I am delighted that the Young Athlete Program is now in France. We hope Young Athlete activities become embedded in family life. The Program not only improves cognitive, social and physical skills in children but also serves as an introduction for new families to the resources and support available within Special Olympics while providing a practical vehicle for families to network with each other."
