Special Olympics

Here's a link to an episode of Attitude which screened here last month. I found it really interesting, and hope Luke will be involved once he get a little bigger. The team travelled to Washington to the headquarters of the Special Olympics. A great story. Special Olympics Episode.

We are off to the Champion Centre tomorrow for our first session in the Early Years clinic. I'm sure it will be fine but I'm feeling a little anxious.

Did you know that our little Island of Ireland hosted the world Special Olympics a few years back. Every town and city was host to a country delegation, special signs were put up on the roads getting into these places (most are still there), and athletes and other teams members were housed in ordinary people's homes. There was a such a buzz everywhere.

The Opening Ceremony was transmitted live on TV, and I remember being very moved by it... Little did I know that a few years later I would get so close to DS! Also the 2 main evening news on TV (at 6.00 and 9.00pm) reported on the events of the day. Such exposure of Special Needs had never been heard of before in this country...

Hope the visit to the Champion Centre goes welll ;-)
