The issues of people with disabilities analysed for the purpose of developmental strategies of
towns and local government units constitute a motif hardly ever discussed in literature on special
pedagogy. Yet, this subject cannot be recognized as insignificant – developmental strategies are important
documents which initiate good practices in the field of many social activities. The study is
aimed at presenting possible directions in acting for the disabled within the social policy (which is
exemplified by the case of the Silesia Voivodeship) and signalling the potentialities of this policy
as a tool for initiating, integrating and reconstructing good practices leading to normalization of
this group’s environment. What is presented in the article is basic information on particular strategies,
possible contextual approaches to including the issues of the disabled in these strategies and
a sample set of goals and undertakings for this group, extracted from the social policy of the Silesia
Voivodeship for 2014–2020.
