The Special Olympics Unified Champion Schools ® is a program that is aimed at promoting social inclusion through intentionally planned and implemented activities affecting systems-wide change. With sports as the foundation, the three component model offers a unique combination of effective activities that equip young people with tools and training to create sports, classroom and school climates of acceptance. These are school climates where students with special needs feel welcomed and are routinely included in, and feel a part of, all activities, opportunities and functions.
This is accomplished by implementing inclusive sports, inclusive youth leadership opportunities, and whole school engagement. The program is designed to be woven into the fabric of the school, enhancing current efforts and providing rich opportunities that lead to meaningful change in creating a socially inclusive school that supports and engages all learners. What a Unified Champion School “looks like” can vary greatly from school to school, based on the needs, goals, schedules and other factors unique to each school; but the basic building blocks remain the same.
Special Olympics UAE Unified Robotics is an enrichment program that aims to excite neurodiverse students about robotics and inspires them to participate in STEM activities and choose to pursue them in higher education and future careers.
The benefits of the Unified Robotics program transcend its educational purpose; it allows children to communicate and collaborate with their peers, form friendships and partnerships, experiment and make judgement calls - All of which are life skills that neurodiverse children typically need support with.
