Our work focuses mainly on the occupational therapy (crafts work, making
cards etc), physiotherapy and education which aims to develop practical skills
(creativity, learning, speaking, manual, psycho-sensorial, logical, social and
everyday skills). The young people who come here can feel the joy, emerging
from acceptance, attention, respect and love. Besides these, they get the
opportunity to make themselves useful, to feel pleased with their handwork and
developing also their self-esteem.
The pottery workshop makes possible the
extension of the occupational therapy. The clay is an advantageous material for
this purpose: it is natural, inoffensive, soft and with a calming touch and color;
it helps to develop the gentle hand movements and concentration; it provides a
real experience of success. Since the result is touchable already at the
first made piece- this helps the development of self-respect.
A dance therapy teacher works with the youngsters once a week. She
teaches the dances for special occasions. We also have a volunteer music
teacher who teaches the songs and accompanies the performances with a guitar.
The Day Centre
provides a protected environment for the young people. Besides, it is very
important for disabled people to be involved in society in order to improve the
society’s attitude and acceptance of these people.
To achieve this aim we
organize yearly, an Open day with performances and an exhibition with our
We also participate in
the programmes organized by the local council every year for Targu- Mures Days.
