ORIENTATION AND LIFE PROJECT IN INTELLECTUAL DISABILITY

Mariachiara Feresin

Abstract


Orientation actions for future choices are put in place in secondary schools, which are difficult to implement for young adults with intellectual disabilities (ID). This dilemma underscores the importance of the Life Project. Drawing on the experiences of families of young adults with ID, this empirical study explores what role schools and teachers play in guiding and co-designing the adulthood of young adults with ID.
