The goal in the rehabilitation process is the return of individuals with disabilities to active life. The results in these investigations, and in others conducted under the supervision of this researcher, point out the essential elements that release vital forces to enable these people to lead a normal life. The numerical strength of the groups studied permits statistical conclusions and general statements about people with visual and motor impairments of both acquired and congenital types. Individuals with and without disabilities were compared in terms of their self-esteem, level of purpose in life, system of values, and methods of fulfilling their needs. The resulting differences, misfortunes, and successes were found to be interrelated more with living conditions than with disability itself.
