Research results as well as practical empirical data on the physical and mental development of children confirm that, especially in the first years of life, the family environment plays a central role. In order to improve the quality of life for disabled children and their families, this project provides high-quality training to educators. The program provides these professionals with valuable skills for their daily work with young children, as well as with knowledge of the legal situation and the special needs of people with disabilities. The goal is to uphold the dignity of children with cognitive disabilities. Moreover, this sophisticated pedagogical educational model targets best practices for integrating these children into family, school and social environments.
The trained educators are very satisfied and grateful for the knowledge they have acquired. Their appreciation and sense of responsibility is shown by the high participation rate, as well as by the time they invest weekly outside of attending the online sessions. The participation of the beneficiaries was lively and active, which also speaks for the success of the course.
