Summary/Abstract: The article reveals the theoretical conception of the construct of socialization as well as the process and nature of the process of its practical implementation that is directed to meet globalization challenges, i.e. sustainable and accordant development ensuring the well-being of communities and individuals, as well as life quality. Hence, the priorities of the socialization of disabled people is changing focusing on the development of inclusion and participation in social life as well as striving for more rapid development and socialization of the disabled. Social sciences, including educational science, social pedagogy and social work that is relatively new as it has lasted for a decade in Lithuania, search for solutions enabling to efficiently employ connections between them in solving problems of socialization implementation. The article presents empirical research that involved 10 participants and included a semi-structured group interview. The participants have a qualification of a social pedagogue acquired in BA studies and have accomplished MA studies in the field of social work at Lithuanian University of Educational Sciences; they implement practical social work with different groups of the disabled. The research results were generalized and interpreted using content analysis method that is based on “the measurement of the frequencies of quality categories” (iitinas, 2006, 275).
