Abstract

The paper aims to analyze the concept of “social disenchantment” in its negative and positive dimensions. The contribution connects the negative dimension with the lack of planning for the future and connects the positive dimension at the freedom to think for themselves, as an active subjects, a new and more evolved “existential condition”. Through these general thoughts developed by authoritative experts in the field (Cambi, 2008), the paper aims to focus attention on two important considerations regarding the condition of disability. First, the weight of disenchantment (in its negative dimension) that a young disabled teenager has to manage. This “weight” depends by: the social context (characterized by frenetic pace) and the family context (disappointed relative to expectations that had for his son). As a result, the young disabled believes that he is not able to find in society an opportunity of an “adult life” full and satisfactory (affective point of view and of work). Secondly, the idea of freedom (disenchantment in its positive dimension) and of realization of a future project for the young disabled. In this sense, it becomes more important the realization of a good “life project” that aid the young disabled to become active and productive citizens. The “Quality of Life” can be developed with three action levels: technical and educational, psychological and relational. Finally, in order to defeat the fear of disenchantment and to valorise its positive dimension, the contribution highlights the need to invest in schools, at all levels, as an important educational institution. The school with family and society can achieve an authentic and achievable plan of life for people with disabilities. In this regard the organs of government should pay attention to four matters: the economic one; the one that identifies the school as an opportunity for all; the one concerning the role of teachers and that it addresses to the relationship with the territory.
