Organizational Statement of Faith: 

Our work is guided by our ambition that human rights must be made a reality for all persons with special abilities. We thus contribute to the realization of the Convention on the Rights of the Child and the Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities, as they relate to persons with special abilities.

We promote that the right to non-verbal means of communication, as established in the Convention, be made a reality for children and adolescents with special abilities, with methodologies that emphasize the sensorial and emotional abilities, surrounded by nature.
