The program for children with special needs was established in 2005 in Upsala-Circus. An integral part of learning in this group is the play method of engaging children, which makes it unique. The children’s social skills, their ability to communicate and their movement coordination are improved through articulate introduction of tasks. As their opportunities to become eligible members of society are narrow in Russia the circus is a place for them to find talent and competence in themselves.
In September 2016 we opened our Pacitain Centre where three new groups of children with Down Syndrom will have different trainings and activities. The centre is equipped according to all the principles of a risk-free environment.
