Contents and implementation of the rehabilitation

Taito rehabilitation is a combination of individual and group-based measures along with on-the-job training. The rehabilitation lasts up to 106 days, depending on the individual situation of the client, and it is usually carried out over a period of 15 months. During the Taito rehabilitation, you will be assigned a personal instructor who will assist you throughout your rehabilitation.

The Taito rehabilitation includes

  • 6–16 individual sessions
  • 17–20 days of group rehabilitation
  • 50–70 days of on-the-job training.

The Taito rehabilitation includes an introductory period, a practical on-the-job training period, an advanced period and a final period.

Introductory period

The Taito rehabilitation begins with an introductory period (start-up stage), which includes individual sessions and group rehabilitation. During the introductory period, you and your instructor will draw up an individual plan that takes into account your personal goals.

The plan also includes

  • the methods needed to achieve your goals
  • the cooperation with support networks
  • the persons responsible for your rehabilitation
  • the tasks you need to complete between rehabilitation periods.
  • Your individual plan complements the general plan implemented during the group rehabilitation period. 

There are 1–5 individual sessions, all according to your needs. At least one of the session is a face-to-face session on the service provider’s premises. The rest of the sessions can be arranged in the form of video calls.

After the individual sessions, the group sessions commence. There are a total of 12 days' worth of group sessions, and the group sessions are implemented in 3 periods and held on the service provider’s premises.

During these sessions you will, among other things,

  • identify the group’s common objectives and needs for change
  • perform activity-based exercises
  • practice working systematically in order to achieve the goals of the rehabilitation
  • actively look for an on-the-job-training position.

Period with on-the-job training

After the introductory period, a period with on-the-job training begins. Before the start of the training itself, there are 3–7 individual sessions (the motivational stage), which are held either on the service provider’s premises or in the form of video calls. At least one of the session is a face-to-face session on the service provider’s premises.

The on-the-job training lasts 50–70 days, depending on your individual needs. When looking for an on-the-job training position, you will primarily be focusing on the open labour market. You can complete your on-the-job-training 'by working in several workplaces or by performing different kinds of job tasks at a single workplace. 

During the period with on-the-job training, you will receive orientation and guidance in your job tasks and also an opportunity to learn on the job, apply your competence and demonstrate your skills. Your rehabilitation instructor will support you during this period, and you should not hesitate to contact him or her in all matters related to the on-the-job training. You will also receive feedback about your job performance from your employer and rehabilitation instructor. 

Advanced period

After the on-the-job training, an advanced period begins. It starts with 1 to 2 individual sessions (the “my plan” stage). The sessions can be arranged face-to-face on the service provider’s premises or in the form of video calls. During the sessions, you and your rehabilitation instructor will jointly assess the progress made during your rehabilitation. If necessary, you will plan further measures and possibly draw up a vocational plan.

After the individual sessions, you will all meet as a group. The group will assemble for 5 days. If you already have clear plans for employment, your rehabilitation may end here. However, please agree with your rehabilitation instructor on a follow-up meeting during the final period.

Final period

The final period lasts 3 days and begins with a group session for those clients who have not yet finalized their vocational plans. If you so wish, you can participate in the session even if you already have a plan. The final period also includes 1 or 2 individual sessions. During these sessions, we will ensure that you are making progress with your vocational plan.
