Eligibility for participation in Special Olympics is limited to individuals who have an intellectual disability or a related developmental disability that causes functional limitations in general learning and in adaptive skills such as recreation, work, independent living, self-direction or self-care.
People with functional limitations based solely on a physical, behavioral, emotional, sensory or specific learning disability are not eligible. Although Pearland ISD students ages 6 and older are eligible to participate in Special Olympics, only children 8 and older are eligible for competition. Students who are no longer eligible for Pearland ISD special education services are no longer eligible to participate in the district's Special Olympics program.
