A special needs cheerleading squad completing a successful season. The group was started by the Titanium Cheer Allstars Gym this year.

The gym held an open house on Sunday, where the special needs team joined others .

Everyone in the special needs group has some type of disability, including Down Syndrome, Autism or neurological problems.

Parents say being part of this cheer squad has helped the kids build confidence. They say attending competitions alongside other cheerleaders allows them to make new friends and feel like they are part of a bigger group. The other cheerleaders also help teach and guide the special needs group.

"It's a great opportunity because there aren't as many opportunities for individuals with disabilities, so this is an opportunity where they can be part of a team," said parent Deanna Miller.
