Parents ‘perceptions of children with disabilities determine parents’ acceptance of children with disabilities and the quality of care provided. This study aims to describe parents ‘perceptions of children with disabilities, and to examine whether there are differences in parental perceptions of children with disabilities based on the child’s age at diagnosis, differences in parents’ age and differences in parental education levels. This research was conducted by giving a questionnaire to 83 parents, of which 75% were women. Data were analyzed descriptively with percentages and analysis of variance was also carried out. The research findings conclude that most parents accept the diagnosis of their children with disabilities, and consider that having a disability is God’s will. Most parents feel that their extended family and society can accept the existence of children with disabilities, they also understand the special needs of their children and are optimistic about the future of children with disabilities. On the other hand, most respondents felt that they were failures as parents, and most parents chose to place their children in dormitories. Based on the analysis of variance, it was concluded that parents ‘perceptions of children with disabilities did not differ based on differences in age at diagnosis, differences in parents’ ages and differences in educational backgrounds.
