The Employment and Postsecondary Educational Status of Transition-Age Youths with Visual Impairments
McDonnall, Michele Capella
Journal of Visual Impairment & Blindness, v104 n5 p298-303 May 2010
A limited amount of information is available about the employment and postsecondary educational status of transition-age youths with visual impairments. Reports on the employment and postsecondary education tend to focus on overall results and usually do not provide detailed analyses by disability groups. In this article, the author presents the most current data available on the employment and postsecondary educational status of youths with visual impairments. Detailed information about the employment experiences of these youths while in high school; the percentages employed, by educational status; and the percentages attending postsecondary schools are provided. The results are presented for the entire population of youths with visual impairments as their primary disability and with this group divided on the basis of the presence of additional disabilities.
