The potential social assistance for the families raising a child with special needs may be divided into three large groups – assistance prescribed by the state, assistance provided by a municipality and assistance lead by enterprises’ social responsibility initiative.
Assistance prescribed by the state

Assistance provided by a municipality
Since assistance provided by municipalities differs, the best way to obtain detailed information on the amount of assistance provided by municipalities is to contact a social assistant of the municipality in which the place of residence of a child has been declared.
Assistance led by initiative of enterprises
There are socially responsible enterprises which offer different kind of privileges for the families with children with special needs.
