The purpose of the study was found out whether the balance training would significantly improve the walking ability on intellectual impaired children. To achieve this purpose, the single group design was formulated because a single group design is maximize the treatment variance and minimize the error variance.  The investigator took all possible steps to control to extraneous design factors while choosing the experimental design for the present study.The performance of the subjects was recorded in the group.  In the group was given balance training for five days a week for six weeks. After the completion of training period final test was conducted for a group of intellectual impaired children. The scores were recorded and analysed. Balance training for the period of six weeks with duration of  3 minutes for one repetition up to 30 minuts. The results presented in  thepre test mean value of Walking ability (M: 7.26) was improved to 6.10 after six weeks Balance training with mean difference of 1.16.  The obtained’ value of 2.484 was greater than the required’ value of 2.144 Hence, it was proved that there was significant improvement in Walking ability among Impairment Children due to Balance training.
