Abstract Disability support in India for persons with developmental disabilities has been ignored or hidden for generations due to cultural and social pressures and beliefs. Recently, however, long-held social norms have begun to change through progressive and creative program and professional development. During the last decade, OM Creation Trust of Mumbai, through an innovative blend of educational, spiritual, arts-based, and skill-based approaches, has seen great success for women and men with development disabilities to build productive and meaningful lives. Based in the research model of integral research design, this best practice session will highlight core program components of teacher training and professional development, individual assessment, and the unique spirituality and creativity of the FACE program model in Mumbai, India. Implications for international model application and linkages with UDL are shared.
