Help for children, young people and parents
Children and young people with special needs should receive the help they need as fast as possible. In Sønderborg Municipality we place great emphasis on the municipality's provision to accommodate all children wherever possible.
Very small children
You can get help for very small children via the Health Care Service.
If your child is in a daycare institution, you can refer your concerns to the personnel here. They will pass on the information to Children and Families, which is the municipality's department for children and young people with special requirements. See the contact information at bottom of page.
If your child does not attend an institution, as a parent you can always refer to Children and Families Reception, who will provide further help. See contact information at bottom of page.
School and afterschool centres
If your child attends school or an afterschool centre, the school has a range of options for assistance. You should talk to your child's schoolteacher and ask for an interview. The interview can also be with the leader of the afterschool centre. Regarding your school-age child, you also have the option of directing the referral to Children and Families Reception (see contact information at bottom of page).
If you are a child, young person, or parent in need of help in clarifying a problem which is causing difficulties, you have the option to contact Advice Service 24-7. Here, staff are on hand around the clock to listen and help.
