I am a student in high school, and for the past three months I have been working on a short documentary on a very important cause to me.
I am living in a small town where tolerance and acceptance of others is a relatively new concept. I need advice.
Special Olympics Alberta has started a landmark partnership with the Alberta Schools' Athletic Association to bring Unified Sports opportunities to schools.
Special Olympics is excited to announce our partnership with the Jr. NBA. The Jr. NBA presented by Under Armour is the league’s youth basketball participation program that teaches the fundamentals and values of the game at the grassroots level to help grow and improve the youth basketball experience for all.
Words have a lot of power.
They can build or destroy. They can save someone's life or make them want to take their life. Words should be used to build someone up not to tear them down.
I like doing Special Olympics during the summer and winter times; it made me believe in myself. I like running with the police officers during the torch run every year.
I never really worried about people using the r-word before. Having a sister with special needs, I rarely used the term myself but I didn't want to be that girl making everyone else in the room uncomfortable.
GMS 5.6 and 5.99 (aka GMS6) are mostly interchangeable and compatible. One area of incompatibility is in the Schedulling module. GMS5.6 auto-generates the Schedule. GMS6 does not.
I like to print labels to attach to awards earned in Games. GMS5.6 is better at this than any other version of GMS. The preferred label stock is 3 x 10. (Avery 5160)
My 13-year old sister was born with Down syndrome. Is it something that is hard to live with? Yes. Would I change this fact about her? Never. She is my reason to smile every single day.
From the time my children were young it was forbidden to say, they were advised alternatives. My son at 10 years old volunteered with special needs on his recesses and noon hours.
In my high school a fellow class mate of mine was hit with a dodgeball and went into a coma.. he did not wake up for a few months and when he did everyone was over joyed!
I hear people telling their friends in the hallway not to use the r-word and I have people coming up to me and apologizing for having used it. Please share our video!
Special Olympics has changed my life. This is my 3rd season in figure skating and I can't say enough good things about what Special Olympics has done for me.
Hi, my name is John Dove, and for the last six years I have coached people of various ages that have disabilities. I coach them in baseball. I got into coaching in an organization called the Challenger League because my sister has Down syndrome.
I have worked with many special children over the past 25 years and love them all they are all special and unique people, they are all smart in different ways and should be treated better than using words like retarded its a awful work and I would never use it on these children. I think people sho
I love watching our Selkirk College CCSW (Classroom and Community Support Worker) program students move into valued roles as fund raisers, coaches and fans!
My brother has a lower speed of developing than others, has a speech impediment, and social anxiety. I always saw him the same as everyone else, until we were bullied, called names, and beat up.
Earlier this year my daughter was visiting and during an everyday conversation , I jokingly called someone the r word. My daughter spoke up and said she found the term offensive. I got defensive and said it didn't mean anything derogatory.
I am in my 40s and remember this like it was yesterday. I had a developmentally delayed brother who passed away a few years ago. When I was about 6 or 7, a boy a few years older than me started yelling across the schoolyard to me that I was an r-word because my brother was one.
no story.....just have been brought to respect others....ALL others
Growing up with my sister who has a disability we heard this word all the time. This word is hurtful and demeaning.
Special Olympics was a partner in the symposium Overcoming Isolation and Deepening Social Connectedness, held in Toronto earlier this month. It was the first global gathering on this topic.
When I used to deliver papers for the Stratford Beacon Herald, people on my paper route used to call me names using the mean r -word.
I grew up with an uncle who had Down syndrome. As a family we were totally immersed in his life and his community of friends.
I don't understand why people use the "R" word as a synonym for stupid or anything else flawed. It doesn't make them sound "Cool". It just makes them ignorant.
I have a cousin David who has a mental disability. I hang out with him and his family on multiple occasions per year. Fortunately I was able to avoid any rude altercation, until one day.

Hi, My name is Meghan O'Donovan from Stratford Ontario.
When I was in high school I was bullied and called the mean R word and I wish it stops and everyone should be treated with respect.
This is a presentation that my friends and I did, hope you can check it out, and share it too!
When I was born, I was born fanny first with the umbilical cord around me neck, and I inhaled some of the amniotic fluid. Growing up I was called dummy, stupid and retard and a whole slew of names you're familiar with.
My little brother was born with Down's Syndrome and he is now 5. I am spreading awareness within my school about how hurtful the R-word is and I thank my brother for teaching me patience.
My school was holding a speech writing contest, and I entered. The subject was how I could change the community.
Today at our monthly Hot lunch program 26 participants, staff and management from Kelowna Community Development Society's Senior's Day Program stood together and took the pledge to Show Respect to Everyone!

What happened next was priceless. Melanie was taken down to the AVS dressing room before the game, and out walked Coach Roy. Her jaw dropped and she needed a moment to catch her breath.
I have developmental learning and intellectual disabilities and have been bullied my entire life. Until I entered Special Olympics, where I made my first national games in my hometown -- winning 3 golds and a silver and being enrolled with the Best Buddies programs.
My son has down syndrome, AdHd, Ocd & Odd. He has been given surmountable obstacles to overcome. And he's doing it! He's 12! He loves people regardless if they have treated him poorly.
My sister is a quiet, timid, and kind person to EVERYONE she meets. When i first found out about her disability i was baffled. I pledged from then on to not use the r-word ever again.
My Son has Down syndrome, so it hits close to home when someone uses that word. He is NOT stupid, he is NOT dumb, he is who he is.
He's my best friend and I adore him with everything I have and one day a customer came in and he looked at Jeremy and said why is there an r-word wandering around.. I was shocked how could someone say that and the look on Jeremy's face told me he understood.
My son was diagnosed with Autism when he was 2yrs old and my biggest fear is him being in school and out in the real world and someone use the r word!
Today at our school, Northeast Kings Education Centre, in Canning Nova Scotia, 400 students and staff pledged to strive to eliminate the R word in our lives and community.
I teach and every day I learn. I learn from the DD classes I work with. I learn how special and valuable all our children are. I also work with grade 7s who frequently offer their time at lunch and recess to work with the same students.
He used the r-word a couple of times in telling his story, and it felt like a stone hearing him use that word in the presence of my son who is intellectually delayed.
