GIACOMINI, Dalila; MOREIRA, Lisandra Espíndula  y  LONDERO, Mário Francis Petry. Down Syndrome: work and inclusion practices. Cad. psicol. soc. trab. [online]. 2015, vol.18, n.2, pp. 107-121. ISSN 1516-3717.

This article analyzed statements relating to work and inclusion for people with Down Syndrome who participate in productive activities. A genealogical reflection about work and its relation to Down Syndrome inclusion was proposed, understanding that this traces operate as inheritance to the possibilities of insertion in the instances of work. The research was conducted in an institution for people with disabilities, as methodology interviews with people with Down Syndrome and professionals of the institution were used, further on to the monitoring of workshops and production of field diary. From the analysis we can synthesize that the statements are different and point to the complexity of the field. The statements indicate the importance of three issues in the way how people with Down Syndrome deal with the work and the inclusion: Bond building; time and pace of work; family; and remuneration. We consider that the study questions the meanings attributed to work, for employees with or without Down Syndrome, making it possible to think of the singularities that build inclusion and exclusion forms in the professional scope.
