ASSOCIAZIONE SCUOLA VIVA ONLUS
Scuola Viva is a rehabilitation center composed of two departments: one for persons with intelectual disabilities (semi-residential department) and one for persons with language disorders and motor deficiencies (outpatient consultation department).
It is also a research, training and documentation center in the field of intelectual disabilities. It is a benchmark in professional and cultural training for professionals willing to apply the last teaching and rehabilitation methods, with a focus on personal development, social integration and user participation.
Furthermore, Scuola Viva participates in several European projects, disseminates their final results and promotes the right to self governance in Italian politics along with the respect of the UN Convention on to the Rights of People with Disabilities. The association also coordinates a cooperative whose members are the users working within it. Scuola Viva is accepted by the Lazio region and, as such, has a permanent credit certification.
The rehabilitation center takes care of young persons with disabilities, right after the mandatory school period. We offer several activities through which we accompany them in developing autonomy, self esteem and going through their daily activities.
The cooperative is an effective service to discover job opportunities, in particular in the gardening field, maintenance of green spaces and the craft field. Through the latter, users participate in an international exhibition around Europe.
We consider the users of our services as full part citizens, as stated by the CRPD. Each project is specifically tailored by a team in coordination with the user and his/her family.
