A number of Programs directly contributed, including: Austria, Poland, Romania, Israel, Greece, Serbia, Czech Republic, Northern Ireland, Turkey, and Canada. This book showcases the benefit of collaboration among researchers and practitioners with interest in sport for people with intellectual disabilities (ID) across geographic and thematic borders.I believe this is a publication of high value for anyone and in particular students inside and outside the of Special Olympics framework. We will make use of this book as well in approaching sponsors, donors and other supporters as it underlines our impact evaluation, documentation and research expertise. This is a great piece that focuses on research relating generally to sport for people with intellectual disabilities and particularly to Special Olympics.
