Enter the keyword “therapie” in the diary. The cost of the workshops that take place in Toscanzahoeve are partly for the benefit of Therapiedier vzw and their therapy animals!
Therapiedier vzw only recognizes professionals who have graduated from a recognized training center. Therapiedier vzw bases this, inter alia, on the lists provided by apbct and kahot regarding the recognition for vocational training. More info on the site www.kahot.be
