The present paper wishes to demonstrate the situation of people living with disabilities and the related interpretations. People living with disabilities are a prominent social problem in the Hungarian society today, trying to conform not only to the European Union, but also to the Hungarian system. In the study, the author objective is to draw attention to what exactly the meaning of discrimination is, the frames of its interpretation and how it affects people living with disabilities. He also examines what it means to be disabled, what perspectives this group has in social integration concerning their acceptance and their participation in the education system. He is convinced that the Hungarian society is still not able to properly handle the situation of living with disabilities, nor help their social integration.
