The study summarises scientific and theoretical information that provides the basis for the use of telerehabilitation methods in the promotion of the development of physical, emotional and social balance for 12 – 13 year old adolescents in the context of inclusive education. The study describes the efficiency of modern technologies for the improvement of the physical and mental health of adolescent learners, as well as suggests services of social rehabilitation which could be provided from the distance. The target audiences of the study are teachers with different professional competence, researchers and the education policy makers.
