The Alma is one of five programmes of the Theotokos Foundation and offers services for early child intervention through its interdisciplinary team, to families with children between the ages of 0-8 who display problems in any sector of development or children who are in the high risk category (e.g. premature) which may present problems growing up.
Alma gives specific emphasis to the provision of information, and advisory and psychological support to the parents.
From September 2012 it also has an afternoon program of intervention for older children.
In the last three years a special relationship has developed with the Dancing Queen Foundation, which was prompted by one of the mothers. Thanks to the foundation, Alma now has six special wheelchairs for children with physical disabilities, new mattresses, equipment for the department of physiotherapy, a Snoezelen room and also paid for training of the personnel of Alma on important methods. In total an amount of €36,000.00 has been donated to Alma.
