Our courses for young adults with disabilities

What are my plans after SPED? What are my talents? Konekt helps you to answer these questions. Throughout Flanders, we organise practical courses for high-school dropouts with a mental disability, ASD and/or ABI. In these courses, you find out your strengths and you discover new things. Together we build the future you want.
