Rehabilitation and adaptation training courses

Kela provides access to rehabilitation and adaptation training courses for children, adolescents and adults as well as their families and others close to them.

The courses help the clients and their families adjust to the changes brought about by an illness or impairment and to achieve rehabilitation goals. During the courses you will get information about your diagnosis, peer support, and help with how to manage daily activities.

The courses are arranged as group rehabilitation. Courses for children are arranged as family courses, which allows parents and siblings to participate as well.
