ABSTRACT

The purpose of this study is to find out and explore how deeply the community understands the intellectual disability sports and also the Special Olympics Indonesia (SOIna), which is an organization to manage and oversee the intellectual disability sports. Furthermore, this study uses qualitative methods with data collection techniques using interviews. The sample in this study was sports students. The results of the research conducted explain that; 1) many people do not understand and understand intellectual disability, 2) society considers that intellectual disability is the same as other disabilities, 3) Most of the communities still do not communicate and deal directly with intellectual disabilities, 4) and most of the research informants explain that they do not know SOIna as an organization that oversees and manages sports for intellectual disabilities. This research is only limited to knowing how the community's knowledge about intellectual disabilities, their sports and organizations. The researcher concludes that more forms of promotion must be carried out by the government and related institutions to explain and educate the public about sports with intellectual disabilities so that the public's view of intellectual disability will be better and in a positive direction again.
