Anyone else watch the 'I love special Olympics' programme that was on BBC3 last night? I found it interesting, but it was more just telling the story of 4 people than showing much about the special Olympics.
There was something that puzzled me though... the special Olympics are only for those who have learning disabilities (autistic people can take part, but only if they also have a learning disability). However one of the people they focused on was described as having Asperger's Syndrome. His parents were also interviewed and said he'd developed normally. So why was he in the special Olympics? You specifically cannot be diagnosed with Asperger's if you have a learning disability. Plus it even says on the special Olympics website that people with Asperger's aren't eligible to take part! *confused*
