Special Education

The job of special education is to support people in their living environment.
The disability / impairment is not in the foreground, rather the person with their requirements, their interests and opportunities.
It is not a matter of reducing symptoms. The child is not treated it learns to act in a self-determined manner and to learn. In this special education considers the strengths, the current needs and ideas of the child as well as its individual pace of development. The strengths help the child to overcome its weaknesses. Trust in its own abilities and solution strategies have to develop gradually. The child is monitored precisely, respected in its unique quality and supported step by step.
Special education assumes an integrated person idea of man. Perception, social experience, feelings, communication, cognition, movement, body experience = these areas are all equally important and act at the same time.
