Description of Research Report: Self-Employment for Persons Who Are Blind

Although self-employment has been a viable employment outcome under the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, as amended, for many years, efforts were made to expand and strengthen self-employment opportunities for persons who are blind or have other significant disabilities under the Rehabilitation Act Amendments of 1998 (P.L. 105–220). The amendments specifically authorize technical assistance and other consultation services to conduct market analyses, develop business plans, and otherwise provide resources to eligible individuals who are pursuing self-employment, telecommuting, or establishing small businesses as employment outcomes (Section 103 (13) of P.L. 105–220).
