WHAT DO WE DO?

In the Neurological Institute of Guatemala, we promote the integral development of people with intellectual disabilities and autism.

People who have these conditions face different social and environmental barriers that make it difficult to achieve their full and effective participation in society. Our objective is to provide professional services of special education and therapies to enhance their abilities and skills, in order to achieve their full social inclusion, improving in this way their quality of life and that of their families.

Join me and together we will overcome our challenges each day

Give hope and opportunities starting from Q25 a month
