Services for persons with intellectual disabilities

The services are intended for persons who, due to an intellectual disability, need special services.

Psychological and social checks and a basic health check are carried out as a part of the services for persons with intellectual disabilities. Based on the inspections carried out, an individual service and rehabilitation plan will be drawn up. Special services are needed when basic services are not sufficient.

Services for persons with intellectual disabilities include:

  • counselling
  • guidance service
  • housing service
  • work and daytime activities
  • short-term care
  • institutional care

Services for children and young people in need of special support include service guidance, short-term care, special family work and autism counselling services. Cooperation is carried out with the Turku Paediatric Neurology Unit. Services also include support for informal care for children and young people with disabilities and chronic diseases.
