The primary aim of this article is to determine the influence of the interpersonal relationships that are generated within families of university students with disabilities and to ascertain whether these relationships differ in reference to the type of disability in question or the gender of the disabled student.
Fifty students with disabilities participated in this study, all of whom were enrolled at the University of Granada. The I.D.E.O scale (2003) that was used revealed the presence of a family context that was protective and yet clearly very motivating at the same time. The data gathered, which correlates with the results of the scarce studies carried out by other authors, suggests a need to base further investigations on this subject matter, given that the family is the most effective psychological and didactic stimulus for people with disabilities throughout the course of their development.
