The current modern society we are considering many people are suffering various types of disability. Indian constitution provides for justice, social, economic and political liberty of thought, expression, belief, faith and worship, equality of status and of opportunity to all its citizens. Part-3 of the Indian constitution guarantees of 6 fundamental rights like Right to equality, Right to freedom, Right against exploitation, Right to freedom of religion, Cultural and Educational rights and Right to constitutional remedies which are available to all the citizens including to the persons with disabilities.The reason of the current study was to measure the right and left hand tip pinch strength of vision and hearing loss differently abled children’s of Karnataka state. Further the level of perception on tip pinch strength was also correlated with their actual status. The current study was conducted on 414 vision and hearing loss school going children selected through purposive random sampling technique. The study included two hundred and fourty three vision loss children’s and one hundred and seventy-one hearing loss children’s in male category. All the subjects were residents of special schools within Karnataka state. Their age ranged between 13 to 18 years. The right- and left-hand tip pinch strength was done by following the standard procedure and level of perception on tip pinch strength of vision and hearing loss school children was done using a 3-point likert scale. The right-hand tip pinch strength of 13 to 14 years with 4.22 ± 0.99; 4.66 ± 1.09 in 15 to 16 years; and 4.78 ± 1.10 in 17 to 18 years. The left-hand tip pinch strength was 3.86 ± 0.93 in 13 to 14 years; 4.15 ± 1.07 in 15 to 16 years; and 4.24 ± 1.24 in 17 to 18 years. On the basis of the conclusion of the current examination it is concluded that the vision and hearing loss school going children below average and low tip pinch strength is an sign of low physical fitness level. Since vision and hearing loss school going children required to perform their everyday tasks at their own, it is imperative to have enough strength. Further, the 13 to 18 years vision and hearing loss school children’s under investigation are unable to significantly moderate positive linear relationship their right hand tip pinch strength and 13 to 14 yeras and 17 to 18 years vision and hearing loss school going children’s under investigation are unable to significantly weak positive linear relationship their left hand tip pinch strength precisely.
