Abstract

This study examined characteristics related to employment, life-style, and quality of life of 70 graduates of the Texas School for the Blind and Visually Impaired. Although two-thirds of the graduates surveyed were unemployed, high levels of satisfaction, independence, and community integration were reported. Bringing forth issues related to the risk of unemployment for this group reveals the need for further research in effective programming and personal characteristics, which result in gainful employment for persons with visual impairment.
