Description The aim of the research is to compare physical activity (PA) between children who regularly do sports, who participate in Special Olympics (SO) competitions, with non-sporty children with intellectual disability (ID) and to further determine the eff ect of summer holidays on their PA. Movbands devices were used to determine PA. The participants of the research are pupils with ID between the ages of 8 and 19. In total, 4 measurements of pupils were carried out over the course of 2 years (the number of SO participants was n = 3, n = 16, n = 15, n = 12 and the number of non-sporty children was n = 20, n = 21, n = 21, n = 21). Participants SO have 1611 steps per day higher PA than non-sporty children with ID, reaching 106% of the norm. For participants SO, the trend is convex and summer holidays have no eff ect on their PA. The physical activity of non-sporty children reaches 94% of the norm. The trend of PA in non-sporty children is unbalanced and summer holidays cause a decrease in their PA. Boys in SO have 2,645 more steps per day in PA compared to non-sporty boys. On the contrary, girls in SO have 742 steps less PA compared to non-sporty girls.
