Abstract

Disability has a substantial impact on a person's Quality of Life (QoL). Rehabilitation, a process where measures are taken to improve the QoL of people with disabilities, uses a variety of techniques. Community-based rehabilitation (CBR) is one such technique. It was developed in response to the region's serious QoL as well as its poor accessibility to and availability of rehabilitation services. Therefore, the main goal of this study was to address the concerns facing impaired children and to create a reliable intervention (CBR) for handling those problems. A quantitative research method was applied in this study. Data was collected from 256 participants who were with mild disability i.e., Hearing Impaired, Visually Impaired, Mentally Retarded and Physically Handicapped along with their immediate families, concerned trained volunteers from five different schools. In-depth research was conducted on them by using instrument i.e., World Health Organization Quality of Life (WHOQoL) Bref (WHO, 2004), The CBR model implemented in the community of Bahawalpur, Pakistan. The results of the study revealed satisfactory proof of CBR effectiveness. According to the study, a community-based integrated model of CBR that employs an educational strategy following the guidelines in the WHO CBR manual has positive associations with the enhancement of the QoL of disabled children and the caregivers who care for them. Implementations and future research suggestions are also discussed thoroughly.
