Adaptation coaching

Adaptation coaching is an individual or group-form activity with a definite goal, where the result is social rehabilitation, minimising the problems caused by the disability.

The service is intended for a disabled person and his or her close network.

In the adaptation coaching course, the participant practises social skills in a focused manner, utilises peer support and aims to mitigate the problems caused by their disability to their everyday life. The individual adaptation coaching may include, for example, sign-language teaching, the practising of image communication, the guidance of mobility skills or housing training.

The service is granted on a case-by-case basis and it is based on the resources allocated to it.
