Summary/Abstract: The social support system for persons with disabilities has undergone fundamental changes during the last two decades. This research is looking for answers to questions like: How can families having children with disabilities face the changes of the social support system? What are their educational-developmental possibilities? How do they sense the public’s, media’s and public institutions’ attitudes towards them? What is their prospective of the future? Do they feel the positive changes proclaimed by international slogans (“Everyone’s Europe”, “Inclusive School”, “Equal opportunities: jobs instead of aids!") in their micro- and macro-environment? What are the supporting factors that have stood the test of time and proved to be reliable and strong for more than 10 years? These are the questions to be answered by an ongoing longitudinal research. (First survey in 2002-2004 among 400 disabled children, young people raised up in families; second survey in 2012-2014, of which 100 questionnaires were processed in this research.)
