Abstract

OBJECTIVES: The authors focused on the study to assess the needs of parents of children with disabilities in preschool education institutions in Ukraine. THEORETICAL BASE: The geography of the study covered three regions of Ukraine and seven preschools of different types. The study sample was limited to parents whose children attend preschool and consisted of 107. METHODS: Series of in-depth interviews were conducted with parents of children with disabilities attending preschool. The results were transcribed word for word. To determine the descriptive topics, the pre-coding was performed, and then refined and interpreted using the MaxQDA10 program. OUTCOMES: The results suggest among the basic needs of parents, which they lack in care and upbringing, included: free time (42%); financial capabilities (financial support) (14%); special skills of communication with children and parenting experience (11%); endurance and patience (8%); coherence, understanding between family members (4%); psychological support (3%). SOCIAL WORK IMPLICATIONS: Many indications imply the absence of awareness among parents in the care and upbringing of children with disabilities; misunderstandings with the social environment; lack of knowledge of parents about social institutions where families can receive help and support; lack of meaningful leisure time with children with disabilities, social isolation of the family.
