Statement of problem: The scientific problem which is the object of this paper is the social universe in the case of physical disabled and nondisabled adolescents. The aspects taken in consideration are structure and motivation that stay at the base of such a construction. Objective: The paper aims to give a conceptual frame which could allow a better understanding of the life of disabled adolescents and also to present a methodological view which could be used in future studies on this theme. Method: The methodology we used is a combination of quantitative and qualitative approaches, with emphasis on qualitative. Five physical disabled adolescents and five nondisabled adolescents werw asked to complete 3 worksheets in order to asses the structure of their social universe. Then they were asked to complete RSE test in order to evaluate the manner in which they represent themselves. Results: first, we revealed different manners of conceptualizing the familial universeand friend-group. Implicitlythis gave to the two social realities different in structure and functionality. For disabled adolescents family is first represented as a nuclear family and then as a large unit. Family structure is limited and its purpose consists in mainly assuring the basic needs.
