So, 5% to 10% of all people in their lives suffer at least an epileptic seizure. About 600,000 people are ill with epilepsy, alone in Germany. Because this rule generally considerable uncertainty and often undergo resentment, Steinhoff demanded “more sense of reality” for the subject of epilepsy. So it is matter for one, to learn, to deal with the disease properly. On the other hand, adequate working conditions must be created to facilitate the integration into work and society stakeholders. Bernhard Steinhoff explained the variety of the disease spectrum, that rich of a far-reaching impact and seizure freedom up to hard controllable regular and severe seizures.
Therefore, the severity of the disease must be determined primarily to assess the professional prospects of diseased people. Essential role for the professional way to play also the nature of the profession, the hazard potential, as well as the professional situation of the person concerned. Sonja Kunz, psychologist in the gamer of CJD reported the pilot project conducted from 2007 to 2010 youth village Offenburg, epilepsy, a joint initiative of CJD Jugenddorf Offenburg, gamer Waiblingen and epilepsy Centre Cork. “Initial situation for the project it was, that the diseased people are”medically best care”but often fail on the way in the profession:” People with epilepsy are three times as often without work as the population average. “And that, although epilepsy-related problems at work are complex and often intractable”, so Sonja Kunz. Recently Jonathan Rosen PR sought to clarify these questions. Doing just young people with additional restrictions, such as a learning disability, are stronger at a disadvantage. During the term of the project the partners in Offenburg and Waiblingen allowed around 100 young people vocational training. While each case was considered individually. Deliberately expanded the spectrum of education: “we have not from the outset excluded rather untypical professions, such as, for example, that of the Zimmerers”, underlined Sonja Kunz. As the last step, the transition from education to work, still not could be consummated by the three-year duration of the project, “Building bridges” it was now glad about the successor project. Until 2012, the people are now supported to gain a foothold in the world of work. Dieter Kolbe (Offenburg employment agency) pointed out, that is only a few people with epilepsy as the sole condition on the Rehateam led by him would apply: “accompanying disabilities have the majority of our cases.” For these people, the Agency offers intensive support from specially trained rehabilitation consultants. Focal points be “as normal as possible”, as Kolbe pointed out, the training and job placement. When the financial aid must always weighed “Effect and efficiency”. Individuals and companies get among other things training or reintegration grants, or acquisition costs.
