Social Networks and Support Mechanisms for People with Mild Intellectual Disability in Competitive Employment.
Knox, Marie; Parmenter, Trevor R.
International Journal of Rehabilitation Research, v16 n1 p1-12 1993
Observation of nine subjects with mild intellectual disabilities working in competitive employment settings revealed that subjects' social networks lacked complexity, with few interconnections among the network modes. Major sources of social support emanated from the family and organizations catering to people with disabilities. Social support received within the workplace did not extend beyond it. (Author/JDD)
