The public sector (state and municipal authorities as well as Kela, Finland’s social insurance institution) pays for rehabilitation, essential assisitive devices, requisite support functions in daycare and at school, as well as any needed orientation training programs and interpretation services for the deaf and hard of hearing (D/HH) child. Making a good service plan with the local disability services department helps make sense of the big picture. A rehabilitation plan that defines rehabilitation needs and necessary measures is provided by a hearing centre and used as a basis for drawing up the service plan.
