Family support through social education workers

Help for the whole family

If children don’t develop as expected, this can put a considerable strain on the family’s situation. In the form of family support through education workers, we give these families the necessary support so that they can handle the exceptional situation and thereby create stable prospects for children and their parents.

Thanks to our many years of experience, we are familiar with the challenges arising from life with a child with disabilities. We know about the multiple stressors impacting parents which can disturb even stable family set-ups.

Through support tailored to the particular needs, we put families in a position of being able to reduce the daily stresses, address the special character and needs of the child, and thereby overcome family conflicts and crises. This is achieved through advice and support, but also through practical assistance at home and in the social setting. Parents learn what they themselves can do for their child and are given support for example in their dealings with official authorities, doctors, kindergarten/pre-school or school, when looking for a suitable placement and the right place for your child to thrive. The child’s own resources and those of its parents should be remembered and made use of so that as normal, healthy a development as possible can take place.
