FAMILY AND CULTURE
An important component of social rehabilitation of children with health related disabilities and their families is sociocultural activity, which helps them to communicate, develop their talents and realize themselves in difficult life situation.
Sociocultural activity is socially-expedient activity, conditioned by moral and intellectual motives, for the creation, development, dissemination and further development of cultural values.
Practice of organizing sociocultural activities in schools, rehabilitation centers, where people with hearing problems, eye and musculoskeletal damages are treated, confirms that participation in such events helps them to communicate, to identify and develop their creative abilities, to satisfy aesthetic interests. Thanks to participation in sociocultural activities, the accumulation of experience, knowledge, skills, useful motivation, and positive side of judgment is formed, and views change. In addition, participation in specially organized programs contributes to the removal of children with communication problems, confusion, anxiety, provides an opportunity to enter the educational, information space, as well as in creative, recreational and other socio-cultural processes.
