We treat adults with:

The Heidelberg Parent Training

For parents of two- to three-year-old children with delayed language development and developmental delays.

As parents are the most important caregivers and communication partners for their children, parent counseling, guidance, and training are of particular importance to us. A group of 6-10 parents of two- to three-year-old children with delayed language development (less than 50 words, absence of 2-3 word sentences) will be guided by us over a longer period of time. Suitable language-promoting situations will be worked out with the parents to be suitable for everyday life.

The effectiveness of the Heidelberg Parent Training for early language development has been scientifically proven. Visit the official website for the Heidelberg Parent Training.

Neurofunctional Reorganization

The "Neurofunctional Reorganization" by Beatriz Alves de Ednair Padovan is the learning or re-learning of organized, harmonious movements. The therapy includes body exercises (rolling, crawling, creeping, crawling, etc.) and myofunctional exercises (sucking, chewing, swallowing, breathing). The goal of the therapy is to develop differentiated abilities such as walking, speaking, and manual skills.
