Historically in Nicaragua, there has been very little access to developmental programs for individuals with special needs. Therefore, their educational and professional options have been extremely limited.
Welcome to the Corazon Contento (HAPPY HEART) which is a center in Granada, Nicaragua serving people with special needs, founded in 2008. Corazon Contento operates since 2010 legally under the Spanish foundation: FUNDACION FUNCIONA (in English, this means “it works”). Our center integrates the services of early intervention (new borns – preschool), and occupational therapy (18+ years). We seek to help individuals with special needs in Granada to realize their maximum potential and to integrate them into the community, there where possible.
