Charity Overview

Excepcionales are a non-profit foundation that was founded in 2000 to support families with children with Down Syndrome. When the babies are born, they begin with early stimulation therapy and after a couple of years children enter in regular schools, receiving Excepcionales' permanent support.

People with Down Syndrome need permanent therapies (speech therapy, occupational therapy) throughout their lives to have a successful education and to be autonomous and independent. This is very expensive for Chilean families, since they don't receive any support from the government, so they are permanently trying to find funds to continue with their project.
