This research was implemented by using questionnaire was designed for this purpose and is composed of 20 questions divided into four themes, and the number of respondents were 100 employees from rehabilitation centers. The results of this research showed that most difficulties related to the situation of workers in rehabilitation centers is the lack of sufficient desire among teachers to learn new skills, and lack of time for the teacher to develop their abilities and potential in the field of self-use of modern systems to help people with disabilities. The results also indicated a positive use of assistive technology, which gives disabled a sense of independence at work.
