Description of Employment Outcomes and Educational Backgrounds of Legally Blind Adults Employed in Sheltered Industrial Settings



Abstract: This study investigated the relationship between type of school attended and postemployment outcomes (braille literacy, gross salary, job satisfaction, and work preference) of 270 legally blind adults who were employed in 24 industries associated with National Industries for the Blind. Those who attended specialized schools for blind persons made significantly less money than did those who attended public schools. However, a significantly greater proportion of persons who attended specialized schools (72.2%) could read braille than could those who attended either public schools (19.7%) or a combination of types of schools (46.6%).
