Abstract

Described the vocational situations of 99 Ss with severe learning difficulties (aged 16–24 yrs) who were either living at home with carers or in small living situations of 6 or fewer people. Few people were found in ordinary (as opposed to specialist, educational, or vocational) settings. Of school-aged children, 73% were receiving their education in a special school. The majority of Ss (aged 19–21 yrs) attended an Adult Training Center (ATC) part or full time, and 12% were in some form of employment. 80% of Ss aged 22–24 yrs attended ATCs, and no one was in any form of employment activity. Respondents indicated a high level of dissatisfaction with the vocational services currently offered.
