It is a multi-layered, flexible and interdisciplinary approach with a variety of facilitation techniques and intervention strategies. Through the detailed evaluation and recognition of motor, sensory, perceptual and cognitive dysfunctions, it enables the preparation of an individualized treatment program. A key component of effectiveness is the active involvement of the child and the family under the guidance and training of therapists.

    Improving the quality of life of the child and the family in the present and the future.
