Preschool Children at the New York Institute for Special Education participated in their 12th annual winter-themed Olympics on Thursday, January 29. The goal of the yearly event is to have developmentally-delayed children from 3 to 5 years in age improve gross motor skills like strength, balance and coordination. Each class created their own flag to participate under in the just-for-fun event. Among the activities were Olympics-like games, including ice-skating, winter bowling, hockey, and snow ball fights with crumpled paper.
