Special Olympics Germany
Education is the precondition for inclusion. Sports associations and disability organisations need to put in place proper structures and staffing to be able to provide individual support to people with intellectual and multiple disabilities. Professional care workers need to receive adequate training. In collaboration with KfW Stiftung, SOD has designed continuing and further education modules for specific sports that are used in hands-on training programmes. The aim is to develop practical skills in particular disciplines and to share general educational strategies and methods in sports for people with intellectual disabilities. SOD is a member of DOSB, which means that the training programmes are taken into account for the renewal of licences.
