Rehabilitation and adaptation training courses
Kela provides rehabilitation and adaptation training courses for children, adolescents and adults and their families and others close to them.
The adaptation training courses help clients and their families to adjust to the changes brought about by an illness or a disability. The rehabilitation course provides support and rehabilitation to help clients to recover from their condition. During the course, the clients receive information about their diagnosis and get peer support and help with how to manage in daily life.
The courses are implemented as group rehabilitation. Courses for children are arranged as family courses allowing parents and siblings to participate too.
The courses are offered in Finnish but some of the courses are also available in Swedish and Sámi. See the course pages for more information. If a rehabilitation course is not available in Swedish or Sámi, interpretation into these languages is provided for the duration of the course for clients speaking Swedish or Sámi as their mother tongue.
