Article 8: Right to Integration and Mainstreaming

Means right to claim for consideration in all clinical plans, procedures or practices. It is an approach that fosters integration and mainstreaming of the persons with disabilities and/or their families with normal society as a whole. In the entire rehabilitation process, there should be no tenor suggestive of segregation of disabled or their exclusion from the activities appropriate for the age, sex or cultural background of the individual with disabilities and/or their families. 

Consumers can claim to be active partners in the caring process for persons with disabilities. They should report instances wherein there is any evidence suggestive of a practice of separation, exclusion, ostracism or deprivation of the disabled from their age, gender or cultural practices of their non-disabled peer population.
