Maják n.o. is a non profit organization, which provides the 24/7 services for deafblind adults. Maják means the Lighthouse and it is the first and the only one specialized facility for the deafblind adults in Slovakia. The young deafblinds live in the community of 8 people. The group home provides them the opportunity for the education, the development of their personality, they learn to spend the leisure time and develop their interests. Maják n.o. provides social counseling, special communication, social rehabilitation, art therapy, music therapy and learning through individual development plans. The leisure activities include horse riding, bowling, nature walks, trips and social activities – balls, benefit concerts.

Maják was founded by Assotiation of parents and friends of deafblind children as a response to the issue of the future of young deafblind people. Majak started provide service in 2007 for 8 young deafblind people. It is specialized facility for this kind of impairment. Our priority is that the deafblindness is not the reason for their inability to live their lives fully. We provide art therapy for deafblind people from 2008. Art therapy brings them a lot of skills and various emotions. They learned to manipulate with brushes and drawing area, to know the colours and to keep an attention. We  would like to achieve the own selection of drawing theme and to support individual nonverbal communication. Art therapy is the alternative method of their communication. The pictures reflect their wishes and various emotions and experiences.
