Our Projects

Early Childhood Intervention

Preschool kids attend therapy once a week in the morning. Our staff develop excertise routines for every individual child and carry them out while explaning the excercises to the parents or relatives so that they can then do them at home.

KinderMitBehinderung

Children with Disabilities

Families with children who have disabilites are often discriminated and cast out by their neighbours and relatives. We provide hope and understanding for their situation while we also encourage and train parents giving them physiotherapeutic exercise help.
