To be part of community the persons with mental and development disability (PWID) must be among community and not segregated. Persons with special need should be trained in life skills (toileting, taking bath, dressing and other daily chores) by early identification and systematic training. They should also be provided continuous medical help whenever necessary. From the early stages they must be allowed to mingle with others and encourage them to learn social skills. Persons with special needs must be given opportunity to achieve their full potential by proper training.
Sai Krishna Teja Foundation is sphere heading this cause by continuous campaign and counselling parents, family members and carers.
A typical example is Tejaâ€™s independent living.
