All participants come regularly once a month in fixed groups and on each occasion they encounter the same group members and the same staff. Our aim is to create groups as homogeneous as possible so that the participants can benefit from each other and shared activities.
Every group has goals according to our established goals for preparation for independence and self-determination, social coaching, friendship, leisure activities, developing understanding of the disability and its consequences. Naturally we consider the needs, desires, and interests of the individual participants and groups.
The program during a weekend is composed in accordance to the goals of the different groups, but also in accordance with the needs and desires of each individual within the group.
We continuously perform documentation and evaluation.
During the summer we arrange weekly camps. The participants of our weekend groups stay one or two weeks, together with their group. Children and teenagers not part of our weekend groups are also welcome during the summer. For the younger children we offer day camps, since the summer camp often serves as the first experience of being away from home.
The aim of the summer camp is similar to the aim of the weekend camps; to make friends, to try different activities, to encounter others in a similar situation and to become more independent. During the summer, a nurse is always present to see to the participants’ medical needs. The size of the different groups is in accordance with the special needs of each participant.Both our respite service and our summer camps serve as an opportunity for the participant’s families to enjoy time without the demands that come with the disorder.
