The challenges we face
- It is hard to understand peoples handicap
merely by appearance,
- Difficulties in interaction,
- Lack of independence and desire to
improve, caused by passiveness
We think that it is of vital importance to create a place and opportunity,
for pupils to learn new skills so they can become
independent and determined.
