It also provides support for schooling in nurseries and pre-school groups as well as promoting prevention and the importance of a strong family.
A special education school offering a range of services, resources and assistance connected to education and attention to children with learning difficulties.

It is a service whose principal objective is to offer its users individually focused programmes of occupational therapy services (therapeutic occupation and social and personal adjustment) with the aim being for each user, according to their capabilities, to be socially integrated to the maximum extent possible.

This service provides the users of STO and CEE with their own accommodation. These are reasonably priced, fully-equipped and shared with a group of companions as an alternative to the family residence.

These services provide support for individuals with limited disability in the accommodation itself or in that shared by a small group, to ensure a good degree of autonomy in as normal a surrounding as possible.

Having time and space to address the leisure time of adults affected by disabilities is an important issue for us. We propose a different and alternative use of this time: a time for relaxation, yet also creative, participatory, liberating and communicative, offering time for integration into collective and cultural events in their surroundings. We thus strongly encourage all kinds of sports and holiday activities.
