About us...

The Sikiarideio Foundation is a Training Center for children from 14 to 21 years old, with learning disabilities. It was established in 1939 by the family of Vasilios Sikiaridis and although initially it operated as an orphanage and preventorium, in 1971 it took on its present form and structure.

It is a non-profit legal entity under private law, supervised by the Ministry of Labor, Social Protection & Welfare. It is financed by the Hellenic Public Sector as well as from private donors. Various social security plans also contribute funds. The Foundation is located in Marousi on a privately owned lot of 18 acres which houses the administration offices, the various workshops including gardening and the greenhouse as well as athletic facilities. It provides transportation and catering services to the enrollees. On its premises, the Foundation hosts the 1st Public Special Elementary School as well as the Public Special Nursery School.

Services

The Sikiarideio Foundation offers services to children and young adults with mild or average levels of intellectual disabilities.

The initial assessment is performed by a committee which includes a Psychiatrist, a Psychologist, a Social Worker and a Special Education Teacher. The individuals who are assessed and accepted are then offered the following services:

  • Psychiatric Observation
  • Psychological and Social Support
  • Individual and Group Psychotherapy
  • Consultation services for parents
  • Occupational therapy
  • Speech therapy
  • Dental prevention and care, offered by students of the Athens Dental School
  • Support for employment with professional guidance and collaboration with local agencies for securing employment positions

These services are offered by experienced scientific personnel who participate in programs of continuous education, seminars, conferences, workshops and further graduate education. Objective of the Scientific Group is to upgrade the services of the Foundation and adapt them to the needs and requirements of the individuals.

Cooperation between the families and the Scientific Group is required and necessary, with communication being conducted on a daily basis. Furthermore, meetings with parents and guardians are planned frequently.

The progress of the individuals is closely monitored and assessed. Normally youngsters initially begin with the Prevocational Workshop where after close observation by the instructor they are eventually placed in Vocational Workshops which best suit their capabilities.

In conjunction with the various workshops, there are Associated Programs for a complete development of the individuals capabilities.
