The kbo-Kinderzentrum München is made up of the outpatient SPZ (Sociopaediatric Centre) and the Specialist Sociopaediatric Clinic and is a subsidiary of the kbo (Upper Bavarian Clinics).


We have specialised for over 50 years in the early diagnosis and treatment of developmental disorders and imminent or existing disabilities or multiple disabilities.

Experts in children's and young people's health and in psychology, therapy, social and therapeutic education work together with dedication on individual concepts of diagnosis and treatment at the cutting edge of scientific developments. 
We offer families advice, treatment and specialist support in order to achieve or maintain integration in society and thus participation in everyday life for the children and young people in our care.
