Unit of Special Education and Rehabilitation

Special education focuses over handicapped people who have disabilities that caused by birth defects or accidents resulted with brain trauma, etc. Early diagnosis is very important especially for persons who have mental backwardness. At our division, mental tests and development questionnaires required for diagnosis are applied to the patients by our test section, and patients are routed to other departments according to the test results. Individual therapy applied on handicapped children and adults, while development control is monitored on children and youths.

Although they are very important on special education, family education and family therapies are incomplete most of the time. Parents must be informed about how to continue education at home and know their children’s development problems closer. In addition to this, our specialists apply individual and group psychotherapies to the families facing the trauma caused by having special children and psychological problems emerging after the trauma.

Special education has to continue over lifetime, so our aim is to teach families how to cope with their own problems and continue taking the special education while converting children happy and successful individuals that can live independently.
