Problem

The main problem is that people with disabilities is kind of "out" from society and hidden like they don't exist which is one of the reasons why people staring at them and not used to see. They are not independent and are embarrassed of themselves. Some parents hide that the they have child with disability and as result that child is not socialized enough. As consequence they can't find interests and occupation as well facilities to earn money and live the full life as others.

Solution

Create a community where people with disabilities can interface, make friendships and get socialized. Teachers will be people without disabilities which will increase their tolerance toward them. In process people will get new interests, hobbies and skills and then gradually integrate people with disabilities to the usual workplace. The idea is start from some easy physical skills which will increase their confidence and then go further.
