Summary/Abstract: The article examines the biographical situation of the families of children with disabilities in Bulgaria. The recomposed families appear as a result of the reorganization of the family structure due to the reduced autonomy of the child and related to the change in the number and gender of the particular individuals involved, as well as the specific roles they occupy in it. Different gender divisions are analyzed, such as those of psychological attitudes towards disability, of perception of parenthood and of division of labor.
