Additional services for children with disabilities in crèches and kindergartens Permit

The aim of integration assistance is to avoid or alleviate a disability. If your child has a disability or is at risk of a disability, you may be granted additional services for childcare at the daycare center. For this purpose, an individual need for support must be determined.

Your child can be cared for in an integrative group with children with disabilities and without disabilities or alone in a group with children without disabilities (individual integration). Additional services are possible in crèche groups (children under the age of 3), kindergarten groups (children from the age of 3) and in after-school groups (from school enrolment to the age of 14).

In the case of a specific need, children can also be cared for in a curative education kindergarten for children with a mental or physical disability, in a speech therapy kindergarten or in a curative education kindergarten for children with a hearing impairment.

In speech therapy kindergartens or curative education kindergartens for children with a hearing impairment, children with a not only temporary significant speech or hearing impairment – usually after the age of 4 – are cared for. They receive curative education as well as medical-therapeutic services there.

Curative education kindergartens, speech therapy kindergartens and curative education kindergartens for children with a hearing impairment have specialized in the promotion and care of children with disabilities. They do not always offer joint care for children with and without disabilities. If the integration assistance provider identifies an individualneed for supportin your child, it shall bear the costs of the benefits. Your income and assets will be credited if necessary.

In a speech therapy kindergarten or in a curative education kindergarten for children with a hearing impairment, curative education and medical-therapeutic services are provided together as "speech therapy treatment" (interdisciplinary complex service). The basis for this is the Lower Saxony "Agreement on curative education support and medical therapies in speech therapy kindergartens". Whether your child has a need is determined by the local provider of integration assistance - with the participation of the specialist advice hearing, language and vision of the Lower Saxony State Office for Social Affairs, Youth and Family.
