Abstract

Most research examining the employment of adults with disabilities utilizes a quantitative model to understand dimensions such as rate of employment and hours worked. While useful, this data does not tell the entire story of one’s experience as an employee. In order to achieve a more comprehensive understanding of the subjective meaning of employment for persons with disabilities, qualitative research is necessary. This presentation will propose a qualitative study guided by the question: what is the meaning of employment for adults with disabilities?
