The Special Olympics Active Start Program is the first of its kind in the Province. The program provides specific training and educational opportunities for children with an intellectual disability and their families. Active Start is built on the rationale that, when children with an intellectual disability receive early instruction in basic motor skills and developmentally appropriate play, there is an excellent opportunity for improvement in their physical, social, and cognitive abilities.
The Active Start Program runs as a 12-week program in which the individual, accompanied by their parent or caregiver, will learn basic motor/movement skills to prepare them for more complex movement skills.
