Understanding Me

Understanding Me: An Athlete's Guide to Healthy Relationships

Special Olympics Arizona (SOAZ) fully supports the notion that all people have the right to healthy and safe relationships. The mission of the Healthy Relationships Program is to bring comprehensive and all-inclusive sexual health education, services and resources to people with and without intellectual disabilities. As a part of this initiative, SOAZ, in collaboration with a team of inclusive health professionals, parents, and athletes, developed Understanding Me: The Athletes’ Guide to Healthy Relationships. This curriculum includes activities, education, and conversations about personal safety, healthy boundaries, relationships, consent, sex, and more; resulting in participants having an increased sense of body awareness, expression, autonomy, and self-advocacy.
