In this article, the authors, based on the analysis of scientific works in the field of social work, pedagogy and psychology, identified the main problems of families raising children with disabilities. Among them are: socio-medical, socio-economic, educational, socio-professional and socio-pedagogical problems. All these problems have a significant impact on the effectiveness of social rehabilitation measures for children with disabilities. The hypothesis of the study is the assumption that certain existing problems arising in the organization of social rehabilitation of children with disabilities can be resolved through the use of psychological and pedagogical methods, the organization of socio-cultural events. The results of the authors’ empirical research, the respondents of which were students of the Department of Social Work and Psychological and Pedagogical Education of the Nosov Magnitogorsk State Technical University — participants of the program for the social rehabilitation of children with disabilities, conducted by the Metallurg Foundation (Magnitogorsk), allowed to identify the main risk factors of social rehabilitation, as well as possible ways to improve this process. Thus, the main difficulties for volunteers in interacting with children were speech defects and the need for tactile contacts. Initially, information about children with disabilities carries fear of potential interaction with them. The most effective social rehabilitation of children with disabilities is carried out with the help of socio-cultural events, in which they actively interact with specialists and volunteers who receive useful social experience, that is, children with disabilities themselves are included in the process of their rehabilitation. With this factor, the ongoing rehabilitation will have positive results.
