Education & Special Needs 2018-04-30T10:40:10+00:00

The United Euro Bridge Austria fully complies with Special Educational Needs and Disability Act 2001. Supporting those with special educational needs and their families. We provide a range of information advice and support to children, young people up to the age of 25 and their families.

Our special educational needs and disabilities information, advice and support services and Autism spectrum disorder services work closely with everyone involved to ensure the best standard of support.

TUEB Austria can provide support to any child or a young person with a learning difficulty or disability if he or she:

  • has a significantly greater difficulty in learning than the majority of others of the same age, or
  • has a disability which prevents or hinders him or her from making use of facilities of a kind generally provided for others of the same age in mainstream schools or mainstream post-16 institutions

Our services are holistic in the way they engage with and support families and are highly responsive to their needs. We committed to supporting the child or young person as well as their parents or carers to access services and support to enable both to realise their full potential.

We provide a range of support for families of children across the country.

in brief…. what we stand for….

Due to current political and migration issues the number of people with non-identified or identifiable special needs and learning difficulties has increased.

The United Euro Bridge decided to allocate all the responsibility to organise and manage projects to our Austrian Office. Migrants, vulnerable people and underprivilege are now becoming an important issue for the future of Europe.

We know that today we have the facilities and knowledge to identify and overcome such obstacles to improve the lives of individuals and society by making sure all the supporting networks: i.e. teachers, schools, social centres, will be able to offer help towards independency and fulfil their fuller lives via funding applications and projects specifically designed towards such groups.

Our new branch members all have teaching experience and are aware of the increasing number of children with special needs or learning difficulties. Our aim is to promote awareness and find ways to support and help both parents and children in all aspects of education, especially those with special needs.

There are increasing numbers of children with problems such as attention deficit, dyslexia, dyspraxia, autism etc. There is a tendency to ‘label’ these children and just push them through the education system without a real understanding of their situations or the issues involved.

Often their true abilities and skills are undermined.

We aim to develop ways to assist children and young people and their families with their individual needs and education to enable them to bring out the best of their abilities.
