Apply for help with education


In every family there are quarrels from time to time. Quarrel between parents or between parents and children. If the quarrels occur more and more often, it is a great burden. Parents and children sometimes need support. Educational aids provide this support. Help for education is the name for various help offers for problems and in crisis situations of families.

If you want to get help from the Youth Welfare Office, you must contact them. The help is not a duty, but an offer. The first step is often a consultation with the youth welfare office. There you can explain your problem. The staff can give you suggestions on how to solve the problem.

Children, adolescents or young adults can also get help from the Youth Welfare Office on their own. The parents do not need to know about it, if the young people do not want it.

The aids for education are based on the interests of the child or adolescent. The basis for granting it is the assistance plan procedure. In the assistance plan procedure, the legal guardians, the children or adolescents and the youth welfare office are involved.

There are different types of educational aids:

  • An educator advises and supports parents with questions in education (educational counseling).
  • A therapist tries to help the family in group sessions (social group work).
  • A psychological or socio-educational professional tries to help individual family members (educational assistance).
  • Children get help if the parents have a mental illness.
  • Promotion of the independence of the child or adolescent while maintaining the relationship to life to the family (care assistant).
  • Care and care of a child in an emergency situation. For example, the child can be placed in a foster family or in a residential home for a certain period of time (home education or assisted living and intensive socio-educational individual care).
  • For children with mental disabilities there is also the integration assistance (not part of the help for education). Of course, they are also entitled to educational aid. Assistance and integration assistance may be granted side by side or in combination.

Educational assistance is considered if it is clear that it helps the children concerned and without it an education in accordance with the best interests of the child or adolescent is not guaranteed.

An important prerequisite for the success of the service is your willingness to accept help and work on changes.

The costs shall be borne by the competent authority.
In the case of assistance for education in partial or full inpatient form, cost contributions may be charged.

Please submit applications for help with education to the youth welfare office of your district or your independent city.

  • Contact the competent authority with your problems. It decides whether educational aids make sense and which aids are eligible.
  • The competent authority will help you with the application and also advise you on other ways to help.
  • If the help for education is approved, all participants create a help plan together. It specifies how the educational aids should be designed in your case. It is important that all family members benefit from it.

There is a legal entitlement to educational aid. In addition to parents and children, others can also make use of these helps, for example a guardian or caregiver of the child.
