Gender-Related Differences in Placement Rates of Young Adults with Mental Retardation and Severe Learning Disabilities.
Botuck, S.; And Others
International Journal of Rehabilitation Research, v19 n3 p259-63 Sep 1996
This study examined placement outcomes for 133 individuals (most aged 17 to 21) with mental retardation or severe learning disability. Nearly 50% of the men but only 1% of the women were competitively employed. Results suggest the need for more rehabilitation training for women, focusing on self-determination skills (assertiveness, self-advocacy, communication); specific vocational skills; and sexuality training.
