Early intervention of disabled children

The interdisciplinary counselling and early detection teams as well as the curative education early intervention centres are aimed at disabled children or children at risk of disability in the age group from birth to school entry.


Through the earliest possible diagnosis with subsequent support, the consequences of a disability should be eliminated or mitigated and the children supported in their natural development.

Further information can be obtained from the respective counselling and early detection team, the interdisciplinary early intervention centre, the curative education early intervention centre or the districts and independent cities as well as the Hanover Region as local social welfare providers.



The service is free of charge for children.

Further information, in particular with regard to the funding requirements, can be found on the website of the State Office for Social Affairs, Youth and Family.
