Nowadays, the important role of the family in the treatment and the
integration of their children with disability is widely recognized. Many
studies of the specialized literature uphold the need for parental involvement
and similar recommendations come from international bodies, such as the
World Health Organization, and from laws on disability that have been
issued in a number of nations (WHO, 2001; Luckasson et al., 2002; Nota &
Soresi, 2004; Soresi & Nota, 2004; Soresi, Nota, & Wehmeyer, 2011).
