Abstract

Disability is any restriction or lack of ability to perform an activity in the manner or within the range considered normal for a human being. Different types of disabilities are visual disability, speech and hearing disability, locomotor disability, and intellectual disability (mental retardation). ICF is the International Classification of Functioning, Disability and Health. It belongs to the ‘family’ of international classifications developed by WHO for application to various aspects of health. Management of disabilities includes prevention and rehabilitation. Strategies of management of disabilities are discussed broadly in this chapter.
