SIMIONATO, Marlene Aparecida Wischral  and  MARCON, Sonia Silva. A constução de sentidos no cotidano de universitários com deficiência: As dimensões da rede social e do cuidado mental. Psicol. Am. Lat. [online]. 2006, n.7. ISSN 1870-350X.

The everyday life of disabled university students is the leading axis in this work. The objective is to identify the disabled student's perception of everyday life for the construction of autonomy, independence and responsibility. There are two dimensions of analysis: the role and importance of the social net; the meaning and manifestations of the familiar care. The theoretic referential is from the social construtivism and from the analysis of contents. There have been made qualitative, descriptive and analytic studies using semi-structured interviews and observation to collect information. The population for the research consisted in disabled students from the Universidade Estadual de Maringá - Paraná. There have been discussed the personal nets of firm mesh and loose mesh; the familiar care in its various demonstrations; the three dimensions of time that permeates the student's speeches: the long time of historic constructions, the lived time of socialization experiences in the personal history and the dialogic or short time of face-to-face interactions.

Keywords : Sense production; Social net; Familiar care.
