accompanying person at the Holiday stays with the fal
The plan with the 2020 holidays is now available and you can from now on register as an accompanying person :-) for the holidays for children, teenagers and adults with autism.
Your role as an accompanying person is very important and your commitment allows people with autism to spend good moments and pleasant holidays.
We have planned free one-day trainings (9am-5pm) which are an introduction to autism and how to work with TEACCH structuring. Do not hesitate to register for one of the courses by using the registration form.
As an accompanying person, you are entitled to an allowance of 25 € per day for a first colony, 30 € per day if participation in at least 3 colonies, 40 € per day if participation in at least 3 colonies more training. All transport costs, accommodation, meals, activities, admission tickets are covered by the FAL.
If you are interested and you want to participate as an accompanying person then register yourself by sending us the registration form.
SAVE THE DATE: February 7, 2020. We are organising an evening to be held near Ettelbruck for the FAL volunteers and accompanying persons who will participate in the 2020 holidays. An evening to get to know each other better.
If you have any questions, do not hesitate to contact us: firstname.lastname@example.org.
