Valkenburg a/d Geul in South Limburg provides the peaceful setting from which Adelante provides care to children and young persons (from 0 to 20 years) who are faced with a physical disability. These problems might result, for example, from a chronic disease, a disorder or an accident.
To help every child and youngster effectively, Adelante has developed a unique, all-round interdisciplinary programme in which pediatric rehabilitation, special needs education and home-training form the foundation stone for customised care. The starting point for this are the needs of the child and the parents: what are the physical obstacles they are faced with in everyday life?
For example, these might relate to mobility, communication, personal care, social contacts, independence or the application of knowledge. Together with the child and its parents, through a mix of therapy, schooling, as well as any out-of-school care and home-training, we work towards a situation in which the limitations make way for opportunities.
