OVERCOMING HANDICAPS. 

Rehabilitation programs such as medical care, counseling, and vocational training may help overcome handicaps. People may be restored to health, be enabled to overcome emotional despair, or be trained for remunerative work. Many people who are poor can profit from such rehabilitative services, and many are kept from becoming poor by such help: Accompanying these efforts are provisions to make 'society an easier place for the physically handicapped to function. These include the laws against discrimination and requirements that buildings be modified to permit the easy movement of those who may not be able to walk. Many countries are giving increasing attention to such rehabilitative efforts and have had some success. However, it is a continuous struggle, and there are many of the poor whose troubles are not of the type likely to be helped by rehabilitation programs .
