Day Care Center for Children with Special Needs

I t was housed in the same area as the Adult Day Center "Panagia Pantanassa". There were two groups of children whose education was undertaken by two special educators with the help of three nurses, under the supervision of a psychologist. Other specialists were involved in their training. Their transportation to the Day Care Center was made by our Association's buses. The program was open in the afternoon from 13.00 to 19.00 and on Saturday morning from 8.00 to 13.00.

T he main purpose of the program was to provide school-age children with a better quality of life. In order to achieve our purpose we created training programs, to tackle difficult behaviors and help the participants in gaining their independence. The programs are in line with the five main areas of education.

The program was on a team or individual basis as needed and was not intended to replace, but to complete each child's educational program. Unfortunately, the functions of this program was suspended in September 2013. The Association will re-open this program if it is needed.
