Therapeutic Family Holidays 

Holidays for the whole family in one of the most beautiful areas in Germany

The popular therapeutic family vacations in the beautiful Bavarian mountain village of Ruhpolding are a possible component of my work during the existing collaboration. Developmental Support Packages. At any time of the year it is beautiful, peaceful, varied and relaxing here. June is one of the most beautiful seasons here and vacation accommodations often get booked up quickly, just like the summer vacations. Autumn is wonderful with its colors and winter with snow for sledging, winter hiking, cross-country skiing and building a snowman.

Building bridges for autistic children „Dear Sibylle, we got back home yesterday evening😢 Thank youThank you for the great time with you in Ruhpolding, your support and your help! Yesterday Lenni and I spent almost 2 hours in and around Ruhpolding running and Lenni then also found HIS personal favorite place, on a rock just before the 'cream puff countess'. The trip went smoothly, without stress or freak out. We will certainly come again soon to the mountains 😀 Despite some stress this week it was the best time in ages 😉 Lots of love and see you very soon xxx

Building bridges for autistic children „Our time in Ruhpolding was wonderful.

Dear Sibylle. The time with you has moved mountains! For the first time in years we were all able to relax and sleep properly again. I enjoyed the nature and the mountains so much, my husband the swimming in the lake. And Armin still talks about you and the ride on the little train."
