Our athletes with intellectual disabilities are the reason for the existence of Special Olympics. In their own words, they tell the story of a movement that is growing worldwide.
I'm 17 and I have autism. I get called the R-word a lot at school by a lot of people. I hate being called retard it makes me sad and it makes me want to cry all the time I hear that word. I wanted to tell everyone who has a special need that you are not alone.
Special Olympics athletes are my fans and my family and so are the coaches as well.
Special Olympics of North Carolina had changed my life since I moved here in this state and it is almost ten years ago. This is my second hometown.
People use the r-word for the wrong reasons! If they would walk in our shoes and see that we're special in all that we do every day, they would realize not to label people with special needs.It hurts so stop labeling us!!
One day me and my friend were walking home from school, and I have ADHD and dyslexia and I have to tell people not to say the R-word because it makes people feel like less than they really are.
I was hanging out with a friend and when I came back to my dorm I saw someone wrote the word retard on my whiteboard.

People from this very day do not realize that using the r-word is very hurtful to us.
I got a second place here in Rochester, NY at the bowling tournament and I thought that was great.
This story came from a boy that is 14 year in New York on October 6th, 2015. This boy has a disability and at 11 years old he was treated like a monster at school, he was bullied everyday by boys who picked him up and thrown to the ground.
I have autism. I repeat myself a lot and I don't look at people when I'm upset and not talk to them. I get upset when people use the r-word.
I have just moved to Florida from Philadelphia. When I arrived in Florida I had nothing, only a bag with some clothes and my pocketbook. I felt my life stunk. I looked into Special Olympics and I saw their bowling team.
I like Special Olympics because it has helped me open up more and also has helped me find friends that I consider my family, just as like they are my real family.
Hey, everybody, this is Brad Rice from Greensboro Guilford County in North Carolina. I got started in Special Olympics when I was 8 years old.
I want to tell everybody about the grocery store where I work. This month is my anniversary as a customer service bagger at Harris-Teeter, and I have been recognized by my customer service manager.
I Don't Want People To Use The R-Word
i have ADHD and I know it may not be as big of a disability as others but after helping with kids with disabilities and being able to help them it just became so near and dear to my heart.
Please don't call with disabilities names beginning with the R word. It is very hurtful to a lot of people with disabilities.
I was a teenager when I first started Special Olympics and the state that I started in was Virginia. I always loved doing Special Olympics because I love doing sports with my friends and the coaches are like my family.

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'm head-injured, but have a very scientific mind. I admire Steven Hawking. I want to build the first Special Olympics STADIUM in the world.
I got involved in Special Olympics Florida thanks to two friends of mine. I am a Special Olympics athlete for Seminole County. I got involved in Special Olympics in the year 2009 and I am still part of Special Olympics Seminole County.
I was 14 when I joined Special Olympics! It's 2015 and I'm still doing Special Olympics. I love the people. They are super nice and fun loving!
As an athlete of Special Olympics I've learned that moms everywhere are a blessing to all of us. They're role models and make sacrifices for us every day.
when I hear someone saying the r word I tell them what I they were called a bad name how would you feel.
I am getting ready for the regional tournament on Saturday for swimming, and I know if I put my mind to it, I can do what I want to do. I compete in the water here in Rochester, NY, and the swimming tournament is this Saturday. It's also where I live, OK.
I remember I use to be a peer mediator who helps children and your classmates who are sad, crying or not being their usual. So one day this girl was crying and she said she was getting bullied.

Hi my name is Nicole and I am a swimmer with Special Olympics and I think that people should stop saying the R word in their vocabulary. It hurts the feelings of people with disabilities.
