It is well known that the International Special Olympics foundation runs various social and professional inclusion programs. Under the auspices of the organisation, in partnership with Valahia University Targoviste, several projects and concepts have been developed in the last few years, targeting children both with and without disability. The purpose of these projects has been to integrate children with Down's Syndrome, and general physical development with special focus on the recreational character of the social inclusion activities. This, of course, required optimal conditions of professionalism and safety, as well as the involvement of higher level education students, as volunteers for the activities.
