This service supports the child and its family in their home environment. The I.M.E. (Medico-Educational Institute) receives children and adolescents from 5 to 20 years. Its mission consists in meeting the right to scholarisation whilst stimulating the development of autonomy. The E.S.A.T.

(Service of Accompaniment in Social Life) favours the insertion and preservation of an ordinary life of these people. They have a certain amount of autonomy;
  • they live in apartments and/or work in ordinary surroundings.
