The study designed in-depth interviews with ten disabled people using a grounded theory approach. Through analyzing process, 34 concepts, 15 subcategories, and eight categories were deduced. In axial coding, casual condition, `Suffering from unknown cause disabilities` and `Isolated by social cause`, context condition, `Taking discriminative treat for disabilities` impacted on phenomenon, `Overcoming their conditions by themselves`. Intervening conditions was `Taking social supports` and action-interaction condition, `Enjoying public programs` totally lead to consequence in `Controlling daily life` and `Exploring their own social roles`. The periods of process were divided three stages, reflecting disabled situation, formation phase of social relation, and self-developing phase. The core category, `Trying to be recognized as a member of society` incorporated the relationship between and among all categories and explained the process. The study indicates that social education program for the disabled helped to develop themselves as a member of society. Therefore, we suggest there may be a need for training for professionals who work with disabled people to develop social adaptation.
