This article proposes a discussion on the links between normative attributes related to disa-bility and those referring to aging. In the first part, the main characteristics of the social groups considered as ‘disabled’ and ‘old’ are discussed. The discussion highlights the scar-city of works that have focused on the phenomenon of ageing of people considered as disa-bled. In the second part of the text, a discussion of the issues, for support systems and for professionals, related to the phenomenon of ageing of people considered to be disabled is proposed. It concludes with the need to develop innovative practices to meet the diversity of needs of the people concerned.
Keywords: intersectionality; ageing; ageism; disability; ableism; discrimination
