The Donald Beasley Institute (DBI) is doing research into what people with learning disability think and know about Special Olympics, sports and physical activities.
Special Olympics is an organisation in New Zealand that encourages people with learning disabilities to become involved in sport. But sometimes people with learning disabilities:
- don’t know about Special Olympics, sports or physical activities
- can’t be involved in Special Olympics, sports or physical activities, or
- don’t want to be involved in Special Olympics, sports or physical activities.
DBI want to talk with 15 people with learning disabilities between the ages of 18 and 35 who are not involved with Special Olympics at the moment.
They also want to talk to their family, whānau, agia and close supporters. We will ask participants with learning disabilities to tell us who in their family, whānau, aiga or close supporters they think we should talk to.
