Adaptation Training

Adaptation training may be granted for a disabled person and his or her family. It consists of guidance, counselling, and training, and it can be organized in the form of various courses or as individual adaptation training. Adaptation training may include e.g. housing training, training in mobility skills, braille, and courses that strive to improve a person’s social functioning.

Assistive Devices

Equipment, devices, and appliances that a disabled person needs to perform his or her daily activities, other than those used for medical rehabilitation, may be replaced or made available. Such assistive devices may include e.g. household appliances and leisure equipment.

The acquisition costs of these assistive devices are reimbursed for persons who, due to their disability or illness, need such devices in order to move about, communicate, or independently manage at home or in leisure activities. Only the reasonable and necessary costs incurred by such assistive devices that are essential due to a person’s disability or illness shall be reimbursed, and only to the extent of 50 %.

For more information, please contact a social worker from Disability Services at your closest social services unit.
