What is Rehabilitation ?
Rehabilitation refers to a process aimed at enabling persons with disabilities to reach and maintain their optimal physical, sensory, intellectual, psychological, social or economic functional levels, thus providing them with the tools to change their lives towards a higher level of independence.
