Wehmeyer, Michael L.
Research in Developmental Disabilities, v15 n2 p119-31 Mar-Apr 1994
A survey of 216 adults with cognitive and developmental disabilities who belong to self-advocacy groups found that individuals unemployed and employed in sheltered settings perceived themselves as having less control than individuals employed competitively. Results are examined in light of quality of life findings, focusing on the need to include choice and control in programming. (Author/JDD)
