The Artisans of Hope is a project which aims to establish a International Stimulation Techniques platform, which will be located in Belgium, for children and parents who are interested in learning creative and functional techniques to care for their children with motor disabilities.

The project “Artisans of hope” is aimed at bringing together cross-border experience and socialization, teaching skills relating to independence and physical stimulation for children with neurological and physical disorders. The experience of different countries demonstrates that at present there exist plenty of techniques and programmes to help rehabilitate children’s lost functions owing to neurological disorders. Organizing intensive courses and programmes with international experts is the main aim of the project, initiated by the European socio-cultural association So!Art. Recently, we organised a conference with leading specialists from Hungary, France and Belgium in Perm (Russia) devoted to the principles and methodology of using a conductive pedagogical approach as an efficient way to assist the physical rehabilitation of children with neurological disorders. In addition, consultations with a specialist-conductor (Institute Peto, Hungary) were held at the Perm Rehabilitation Centre.
