Competitive employment for consumers who are legally blind:
A 10-year retrospective study

Edward Bell, PhD, CRC, NOMC

This study analyzes the employment outcomes for individuals with legal blindness who have exited the adult rehabilitation system. The fact has been long discussed that individuals who are blind or who have very limited vision have difficulty becoming employed, maintaining employment, and earning a living wage. This study examines employment statistics from fiscal year 1997 to 2007. These statistics are relevant to veterans who are exiting military service and seeking employment in mainstream employment. This study shows important trends and likely prospects for earning potential of individuals who are legally blind.
