This article provides advice to parents on how to support their daughters with disabilities to become independent and successful, and explores the difficulties that parents may encounter in finding the right balance between too much and too little protection of their daughters with disabilities. The authors discuss the differences in education for boys and girls, and the gender role expectations by society that young women with disabilities may encounter. Although the article was written for mainly a North American audience, it highlights many issues that may be of interest to anyone working with girls and young women with disabilities or with an interest in gender and disability issues
