SOCIAL INTEGRATION SERVICES PROGRAM
The Social Integration Service Program is designed to provide adults experiencing adjustment difficulties of a psychological, intellectual, social or physical nature access to an individualized learning that will enable them to acquire basic social skills and will prepare them for further studies, if they wish to do so.
