Summary/Abstract: The choice to study the phenomenon of disability from the perspective of the socalled theory of social constructivism and the social model of interpretation requires, among other things, an analysis of the historical, legal and social context of this phenomenon. The initial step that imposes itself is tracing back the changes in the direction of social policy intervention measures towards this category of population. Considering the fact that disability has been present in society since its beginnings, an attempt is made in this paper to provide an overview of the organized responses of society to the problem of disability from the earliest societies to date, and to describe the characteristics of social support directed towards persons with disabilities characteristic of particular periods.
