Advice & Personal Contact

“The people to whom we are a support give us a hold in life”

Marie Freifrau von Ebner-Eschenbach

Living with children means endless moments of joy – the first words, a hug, an “I love you Mummy and Daddy”, bed-time routines, lots of things experienced together, all that characterises and strengthens parents and will be fixed forever in their hearts.

To bring a healthy child into the world and that he or she stays healthy is probably the greatest wish of all parents who have decided to bring a baby into the world. But many of them suddenly learn from the experience of having a child with a disability, that nothing in life can be taken for granted.

How drastic such an occurrence is, and how much it affects life with a disabled child is self-evident. However, many families who have already been through this journey prove that it is possible to draw from it and mature, and that moments of happiness of unimagined dimensions can be experienced.

Some of them would like to share their personal experiences with you; you can find possibilities for making personal contact with parents, users and self-help initiatives here.

Hearing advisors

In Team Höribald there are also parents who are available on line, by telephone or in person for any of your questions or issues. They have said that they are willing to share their knowledge and experience with others who are just setting out on the path and are perhaps valuable contact persons for you and your family.

Self Help Groups and Initiatives

Helping other people and engaging socially, makes you happy. That has even been scientifically proven. It strengthens the feeling of self-worth, you are happy to have the gratitude and appreciation and you get a feeling of connection with others.Those who help others and engage socially thus do themselves some good, as well as others.

There are also many people who are happy to share their positive outcomes with others by making their knowledge and experience available.

These self-help groups and initiatives will support you at various locations with words and actions:
