Rehabilitation is a set of interventions designed to optimize functioning and reduce disability in individuals with health conditions in interaction with their environment. Health conditions include diseases (acute or chronic), disorders, injuries or trauma. A health condition may also include other circumstances such as pregnancy, ageing, stress, congenital anomaly or genetic predisposition. Environments refer to the physical, social, and cultural contexts in which individuals and their communities live.
Rehabilitation addresses impairments, activity limitations and participation restrictions, as well as personal and environmental factors (including assistive technology) that impact on functioning. Rehabilitation is a highly person-centred health strategy, with interventions focusing on the function and capacities of an individual as well as the goals and preferences of the user.
Early access to rehabilitation through integration in primary health care helps to optimize outcomes, mitigate disability and improve people’s ability to live independent lives.

Speech and Language Therapy (SLT)
A Speech and Language Therapist (SLT) evaluates children or young person to find out if they have speech (pronunciation or stammering), language (understanding, sentence formation and grammar), communication (social interaction) or eating and drinking difficulties.
Speech and Language Therapists work with children and young people who have
- delayed or disordered language (understanding or sentence formation) development
- specific difficulties in producing speech sounds
- delay or disorder in the way that they use speech sounds in words
- autism or social interaction difficulties
- voice disorders
- swallowing difficulties (including babies).
Speech and Language Therapists use their specialist skills to assess, diagnose and develop care plans for intervention for the intervention of children and young people. In the Integrated Therapy Service, they work closely with Occupational Therapists and Physiotherapists when children have needs beyond their communication or feeding skills.
Audiologists are experts who can help to prevent, diagnose, and treat hearing and balance disorders for people of all ages.
Audiologists provide professional and personalized services to improve persons' involvement in important activities in their lives and better their quality of life. Audiologists' services can help with managing issues effecting hearing and balance, including:
1) Hearing Loss – Evaluate and treat hearing, balance, and tinnitus disorders.
2) Hearing Aids/Assistive Technology – Select and custom-fit hearing aids and assistive technology.
3) Hearing Screening and Testing – Screen individuals to identify possible hearing disorders. Testing will confirm if a hearing
loss is present and determine the kind and degree of loss.
4) Noise and Hearing Loss Prevention – Explain how to protect hearing from the effects of noise.
5) Tinnitus – Advise people about how to treat and cope with ringing in the ears.
Vocational rehabilitation is a process which enables persons with functional, psychological, developmental, cognitive, and emotional disabilities or impairments or health disabilities to overcome barriers to accessing, maintaining, or returning to employment or other useful occupation. Vocational rehabilitation is integrated with other healthcare professionals to help the person identify an appropriate occupational match.
