And this power, we found it this time at the indescribable potential that these children have in certain fields, the talent with the perfect doses and almost unbelievable, to the gift of genius backgrounds, they have provided us during the long hours of therapy. These are talents naturally gifted and very comfortable from their beautiful world in fields such as painting, music, computing, reading, etc., which not to leave without a proper form and artistic content do have a continuous need for support by true professionals “.
So this center is a home, a school, a therapeutic center, a place that will offer children and parents the warmth and motivation to empower potentials and build skills of meaningful days.
