Margarita is addressed to young people with mild to moderate intellectual disability; they can start attending at the age of 14 to 25 years.
Access to our services and programmes is subject to evaluation by an interdisciplinary team consisting of a psychiatrist, a social worker, a specialized educator, an ergotherapist.
We provide the following services:
- special professional training
- professional employment and support.
In our workshops, the young people practice everyday life skills (e.g., cooking, fending for themselves, traffic education etc.), general professional skills (e.g., responsibility, consistence, cooperation etc.) and specific professional skills (e.g., use of machinery and tools, use of professional techniques etc.). At the same time, they have the opportunity to participate in sports, cultural and entertainment activities. Throughout their attendance period, they are supported by an interdisciplinary team of specialists (psychiatrist, psychologist, social workers etc.).
The attendance is free and social security fund benefits are used.
Since October 2013, we have been operating a programme of education in supported living for the young people of our center.
Our aim, through the services and programmes we provide, is to offer young people with intellectual disabilities chances for personal development and progress, autonomy, social and professional integration.
