Identified Target Groups

In all participating countries, NeuCaRe will qualify professionals by means of a higher diploma in the partner institutions. Therefore, each country will have qualified professionals to work with refugee children in the following aspects:

  • Detection of cognitive problems in child development. Along these lines, the environment where children are living is going to have an impact on their cognitive development, for example, on their perception, attention, language skills as well as other cognitive processes. Therefore, it is important to detect such problems for potential treatment.
  • Detection of psychopathological problems or disorders. This aspect is also very important to consider due to the fact that experiencing stressful life events could imply the beginning of psychopathological problems related to emotion and stress.
  • Referral to other professionals for severe cases. When cases are severe, it is necessary to refer children to specialists. 
  • Design of intervention programs aimed at cognitive stimulation and educating individuals about the problems mentioned above. The aim of these programs will be to maximally strengthen the mental capacities of the children by means of continual sensorial, socio-communicational, and cognitive stimulation. The needs of children and their developmental stage will be considered.
  • Prevention of severe developmental disorders. The aim is to reduce the risks of subsequent and increasingly severe developmental disorders. If they already exist, the aim will be to prevent additional deterioration.

Improvement of academic achievement as well the facilitation of children’s academic development up until university. Learning processes imply the organization and change of different brain structures. Learning requires cognitive processes of the brain such as attention, concentration, and memory. The improvement and prevention of problems that could affect these processes will have a positive effect on academic achievement for these children.
