ABSTRACT

[Purpose] This study draws implications and implications as a basic study to establish a systematic system of family supports with disabilities throughout their entire life cycle and to seek appropriate support directions by analyzing the needs of parents for family supports with disabilities according to the age of their children with disabilities. In particular, by focusing on the life of the parents themselves, this study was conducted to analyze the parents' family support needs for their children with disabilities across their age. [Method] In order to derive results according to the purpose of the study, a Focus Group Interview(FGI) was conducted, which divided children with disabilities according to five life cycles: early childhood, elementary school age, middle and high school age, early adulthood, and adulthood. A total of 23 participants were divided into groups, and five interviews were conducted separately for each group. [Results] As a result of the focus group interview analysis, three requests were identified as common issues in all five interview groups: (1) parenting stress and self-support, (2) interest and support for non-disabled children, and (3) activity support service. These three needs were found to show characteristics in terms of content according to the life cycle of each group in detail. In the case of the activity support service, it was analyzed that the same problem was pointed out by all groups. [Conclusion] Based on the results of this study, a direction for establishing a systematic system including support for parents and non-disabled siblings as well as individuals with disbailites was suggested when supporting disabled families.
