[Article in German]

Author information

  • 1Asthmazentrum Jugenddorf Buchenhöhe, Berchtesgaden.


The "Förderungslehrgang" in our asthma center is a special training program for adolescents handicapped by asthma or allergic diseases who are therefore not able to start apprenticeship. The course takes one year. Besides vocational guidance and tryout of different occupations, medical and psychological diagnostics are performed. Medical service is provided all day, and a hospital with emergency unit is within the area. Though 41% of the participants did finish school without any qualified graduation after their compulsory school attendance, 79% were able to start apprenticeship after the course.
