Summary:

Raising a child with a disability is a challenge to most parents. The study explored the experiences of parents of children with disabilities in Bulawayo. The specific objective was to determine the challenges which parents of children with disability encounter at home and community, which may hinder them from living life the way they would wish. Participants were parents (female=16; males=4) who were purposively sampled from participants of King George VI Outreach programme in Bulawayo. Data was collected using semi structured interview guides and were thematically analysed. The findings revealed that parents encounter challenges at work, at home, at school, and in the community such as emotional stress, failure to cope with the children’s disability and financial challenges.
