Who we are
The Elsass Institute is the scientific branch of the Elsass Foundation. At the Elsass Institute, we conduct research and provide knowledge on cerebral palsy to the professional community as well as welcome children and adults with cerebral palsy to our Institute presenting them with the best possible approaches to assist them in their further development.
What we do
In short, we aim to help individuals with cerebral palsy gain as much control over their own lives as possible and become independent achieving a high sense of self-esteem and empowerment towards social integration.
Our work consists among many other tasks of:
- developing procedures and training programmes for individuals
- providing knowledge, higher self-awareness and understanding of the disability to people with cerebral palsy
- conducting research and supplying scientific knowledge, often based on our own findings
- hosting seminars and conferences that aim to develop expertise of cerebral palsy, neurological conditions and motor disabilities
