This study aims to understand the meanings and nature of the lifetime adaptation of the parents who
take care of their children with severe disability. For this purpose, Giorgi’s phenomenological method was
applied with the consented 8 participants from qualitative perspective. The statements of interview were
classified into 93 main points, 12 prominent topics, and 4 essential themes. The 4 essential themes were

reconstruct positively through support and challenge’. Based on the results, this study suggested institutional
and practical intervention strategies, so that the parents can adapt better themselves in more positive way.
