Abstract

This research aims to determine the efforts of teachers at SLB Ma'arif Muntilan in increasing the life motivation of their students. Based on semi-structured interview data, we found that students with disabilities have difficulty communicating with the outside community. The inability of the community to understand students with disabilities makes students with disabilities less acceptable in socializing in a pluralistic society. This makes students less self-confidence. We conclude that schools use art in an effort to increase students' self-confidence. The talents possessed by students with disabilities are sharpened to create a sense of pride in themselves. Where this is the beginning in an effort to increase life motivation.
