The main responsibility for caring for their children belongs to women. This article examines the underlying assumptions about the roles of mothers of children with disabilities and how stereotypical gender roles influence the caring of a child within a family. With family support programs being provided on the basis of these cultural stereotypes there are possible conflicts between disability issues and gender issues which will have an effect on the success of full community inclusion of people with disabilities.Keywords: Inclusion, Women
