The New York Institute of Special Education held it’s 13th Annual Winter Olympics on Thursday, January 21. Developmentally-delayed pre-schoolers ages three to five participated in fun winter-themed activites which were designed to improve motor skills including coordination, balance, and agility. Each class selected a country to represent and made their own flag accordingly. The students then had a blast playing Olympic inspired games such as hockey, bowling, and ice skating. At the closing ceremony, each child was crowned a winner and received a medal.
