Instituto Neurologico de Guatemala

Their History

During the 60s people with disabilities were totally excluded from society, and for this reason, a group of parents, enthusiastic and committed, came together around their friendship and determination to find a better future for children with intellectual disabilities.Neurological Institute of Guatemala was founded.  

The Institute’s population gradually increased, and at the end of that year, 44 students now made up the educational community.

In those days, there were still no interventions and educational services available for children with special needs in Guatemala, and the Institute became the pioneer organization in Guatemala.
