Blurb/Shorttext:
This book describes a participatory, qualitative study on the work experiences of people with developmental challenges. Twelve individuals who were employed in sheltered workshops, semi- sheltered workshops and community settings participated in the study. A narrative framework guided the data gathering process whereby individuals had the opportunity to share their personal stories as well as reflect on these stories with similar others. Data was analyzed using open coding procedures and findings from participant interviews and focus groups identified three dimensions of employment experiences for people with developmental challenges: empowerment, social and environmental. The components of positive and empowering employment experiences were also identified. An Ecological Model of Employment was then developed to demonstrate the many factors that impact employment experiences. Participatory Action Research Learning was used throughout the study. Participants developed and shared their stories on a video which they presented and discussed with various audiences. Their feedback on this experience is also included in this book.
