In the six recognised early intervention centres of the City of Bremen, parents whose child has been diagnosed with a (threatening) disability are advised. Parents who observe that their child is developing much more slowly than children of the same age should also contact the early intervention centres.
Depending on the child's need for support, the child will receive, on the basis of a detailed examination, a curative educational service of early support or a so-called complex service combining medical-therapeutic services (e.g. physiotherapy, occupational therapy, speech therapy, psychological support) with curative educational support.
Depending on the support and treatment plan drawn up for each child, support takes place in the early intervention centre, at home or in the day nursery. It is also possible that the medical-therapeutic service is provided independently of the curative education support.
