Children’s rehabilitation is not a luxury

Consultation and legal rights

rehaKIND e. V. | Internationale Fördergemeinschaft Kinder- und Jugendrehabilitation

The consultation and legal rights section is very important for you: Every child has the right to be provided with individual disability aids that support them in everyday life and don’t make things harder for them. It is easy to get confused given the many laws and jurisdictions involved. Being in the right doesn’t always mean you get what you need.

That is why we have compiled all the relevant information for you: laws, competences, deadlines, terminology and much more. When it comes to specific cases, our rehaKIND professional network is there to support you. We are predominantly active in Germany, Switzerland and Austria, that is why our links are not available in English. However, we are happy to answer in English if you contact us by e-mail, phone or in person.
