Children with special needs 

Every child develops at their own pace, but the development of a special child takes place through an individual path and requires different support. 

Sometimes the child’s special features are already known during pregnancy, as some diseases and injuries can be seen in an ultrasound examination. For some children, these are noticed immediately or very soon after the child is born. However, many special features only become apparent later on when the child does not learn and develop at the same pace as others. Support and help are available for families in any situation, and frequently peer group activities as well. You can get information on these from your city’s or municipality’s maternity and child health clinic, early childhood education, school or health services.
