In the inception of the community based rehabilitation approaches many programmes focused more on the rehabilitation of the children with special needs and persons with disabilities as an alternative rehabilitation health approach away from the institutions and the focus was mainly within the affected families

Agness Katunge is the first born in a family of five siblings. Agnes was identified by the APDK CBR staff during the door to door survey at the age of 3years, assessment was done and therapy started and the mother and the other family members were trained on how to do simple therapy to the child while at home. Later, the child was enrolled at The Star of Hope Daycare centre for school preparation and mainstreaming. After two years she was admitted at St Mary’s Mbiuni for her primary school education.
