The purpose of this study is to establish a relative effect of training in Community-based rehabilitation on attitude of non-disabled people toward people with disabilities. A total of 75 unit committee members of the KEEA District assembly who were put in 3 groups responded to the ATPD Scale. Data were analysed using the t-test at 0.05 significant level. Results indicate that significant differences exist in the pretest and post test attitude scores for those exposed to treatment while no significant difference was observed in the pre-test and post-test attitude scores for the control group. The conclusion was that training in the CBR can substantially change attitudes of non-disabled people toward people with disabilities
