Assistance measures for families

In order to support families experiencing difficulties in their everyday life, several types of assistance measures are available. After contacting the Office national de l’Enfance, which can provide partial or complete funding for these measures, families are guided towards the providers who best meet their needs.

Psychological, social or educational assistance for families

Your children don't obey anymore? You experience difficulties finding your place as a parent? You don’t know how to set limits or show your support for your children?

Psychological, social or educational assistance can help you get the solutions to the educational needs (find agreements, set rules, be consistent) and the emotional needs (show love and affection, provide a feeling of safety and protection) of children and adolescents.

This assistance designed for families is also available for families and young people in their daily organisation (supporting needs, care, structure and rituals) and determines the tasks and duties of every family member. This can help improve the family situation so that every member is able to find his or her place in the family.

Service providers

Psychological counselling or psychotherapy

Your children are going through a difficult time? They are not feeling comfortable in their own skin? Their relations with the family, siblings or with third parties are complicated?

Psychological counselling or psychotherapy measures may help them overcome their relationship and behavioural difficulties.

The following services provide a first session free of charge and may request some financial participation thereafter:

Assistance through early special education, psychomotricity, occupational therapy and speech therapy

Your baby cries a lot and does not sleep at night ? Your child has difficulties to get dressed alone or eat without help? He or she seems clumsy and is frequently agitated or else is too quiet? He or she seems to have difficulties to develop speech and writing skills?

An early support through special education, psychomotricity, occupational therapy or speech therapy can help to meet the individual needs of your child, to guide the child’s development and so prevent him or her from dropping out of school and society.

Service Treff-Punkt 

The « Service Treff-Punkt », which was created in 1997 and the service Institut étatique d'aide à l'enfance et à la jeunesse (Aitia), are locations where the visiting right between children and parents can be exercised.  It provides a structure where children can meet their parents when visiting rights are prohibited, blocked or difficult. This situation can apply to children who are living in an institution, a foster family and with separated or divorced parents.

The « Service Treff-Punkt » offers a neutral location, free of any position-taking with regards to existing conflicts. It is important that children see their parents and don’t lose a link to their family and origin. Thus the focus is put on the meeting between the child and the visiting parent(s).

Since 2003 a branch of the service, the Treff-Punkt Prison operates within the frame of the penitentiary centre in Schrassig.
