IVATIUK, Ana Lúcia  and  YOSHIDA, Elisa Medici Pizão. Vocational Guidance for People with Disabilities: Literature review (2000-2009). Rev. bras. orientac. prof [online]. 2010, vol.11, n.1, pp. 95-106. ISSN 1984-7270.

The study aimed to conduct a review of the literature published in the last decade on vocational guidance of persons with disabilities. Publications, selected from electronic databases, totaled 55 references including articles (n = 41), theses and dissertations (n = 6), book chapters (n = 2) and books (n = 6) and were organized into national and international data and compared. Data analysis focused on the kind of production support, the nature of the work, the age of the target population, the theoretical model and methodology and the characteristics of the process of vocational guidance. The results showed a predominance of papers in the areas of Psychology and Education relating to survey research on young adults attended individually in vocational guidance, based on the behavioral or the psychoanalytic approach, with little emphasis on the process. Some gaps and limitations of the research were pointed out.
