ANGONESE, Larissa Schikovski; BOUERI, Iasmin Zanchi  y  SCHMIDT, Andréia. Adults with intellectual disability: conception of disability and career trajectory. Rev. bras. orientac. prof [online]. 2015, vol.16, n.1, pp. 23-34. ISSN 1679-3390.

This study aimed to describe the relationship among school trajectory, career trajectory and the conception of intellectual disability (ID) from workers included in the labor market with this disability. Twenty adult participants (19-35 years old) with a diagnosis of ID, employees of a supermarket, answered individually a semi-structured interview. The analysis of data was qualitative. The inclusion in work promoted a positive description of themselves, although depreciatory views about disability in general persisted, possibly due to the failure in regular schools, which seems to reflect on the lack of perspectives of autonomy and better conditions at work. This study points out the discussion about the role of career and vocational guidance in the transition of individuals with ID to professional life.

Palabras clave : intellectual disability; inclusion in labor market; person with disability.
