What does work mean in the lives of people with intellectual disabilities

Written Material

This article presents and discusses some emergent findings from an ongoing ethnographic study in settings where people with intellectual disabilities are employed in integrated work-places in Norway, using a "supported employment" model of supports. The aim of this study has been to explore the social meaning of work in the lives of these individuals, and to reflect (again) on why and how work is important for people with disabilities.
