Welke kansen hebben jongvolwassenen met een visuele beperking op de arbeidsmarkt


This thesis sets out the chances which young adults with visual impairments encouter in the fields of employment. The basic investigation on which this basis is based is the result of a study of 51 young adult aged between 23 and 33 years of age. Of this group only 5 were unemployed making the possibility of comparing the results between the employed and the unemployed unachievable. Comparisons were legitimately possible between various sub group based on sex, the length of working hours etc. Furthermore distinctions became apparent between different careers, competence, and individual characteristics of those investigated. At the same time a comparison was undertaken regarding the concepts of well-being, self evaluation and the acceptance of the impairment and the size of the social network. The most important conclusions are that people with a visual impairments find employment in certain work sectors where they are able to find only limited types of employment. The general job satisfaction is above the average Dutch employee. As far as the various competencies and character features are concerned there is very little difference to be found between the various sub-groups. There are links to be found between the competencies and individual characters as well as the career status and their ideals of work, contentment with the work and the skills and problems both at home and at work.
