Stigma is an inseparable part of social life. Stigma shows diversity in representing viewpoints, values, standards, and the power to make social categorizations. One of the causes of stigma is physical and non-physical differences such as those experienced by people with disabilities. Parents of children with disabilities also feel the impact of stigma related to disability as an associated group. The research uses a psycho-social approach with a descriptive-qualitative method to explore perspectives, experiences, responses, and de-stigmatization strategies. The research subjects are parents who have children with disabilities in Yogyakarta. The study found several forms and characteristics of stigma experienced by parents and various reactions and efforts of parents to fight stigmatization.
