Community-based rehabilitation (CBR) is, now, considered as a viable and sustainable new entry point aiming at the improvement of the quality life of the disabled persons. The CBR program of Ability India aims at community services with linkages after identifying the community needs. This will bottom-up approach with persons with disabilities, family, and community as the center. The children with mild and moderate categories of disability can be admitted in the regular classes with the teacher as a resource with adequate orientation. Other options are engaging itinerant teachers, creating resource rooms in regular classes, and arranging special classes in regular schools for children with intellectual disabilities. It may be observed from the model above those more children with intellectual disabilities will benefit from the least restricted learning environment which is directly proportionate to the less severity of the disability. The mission is to render rehabilitation services to all disabilities and all ages, with principles of gender just, informed client, socio-medical model inclusion and convergence, and not transaction by the transformation. The mission further envisages public private partnership, self – help groups, use of technology, knowledge sharing, and capacity building in the community.
