Individuals with intellectual disabilities are faced with significant barriers relating to the transition to adult life and jobs. The research’ purposes were: to determine what evidence-based transition programs have been realized since the introduction of UNCRPD; to design and evaluate the effectiveness of the transition program E-IDEAS (carried out in Ireland), aimed to support workplace inclusion. A systematic literature review was carried out, and the elements emerged were used to develop the program, attended by 5 participants, and provided with five work-placements. Pre-and post-intervention standardized assessments were taken for measuring the improvement in quality of life and adaptive behaviour.

Abstract

Individuals with intellectual disabilities are faced with significant barriers relating to the transition to adult life and jobs. The research’ purposes were: to determine what evidence-based transition programs have been realized since the introduction of UNCRPD; to design and evaluate the effectiveness of the transition program E-IDEAS (carried out in Ireland), aimed to support workplace inclusion. A systematic literature review was carried out, and the elements emerged were used to develop the program, attended by 5 participants, and provided with five work-placements. Pre-and post-intervention standardized assessments were taken for measuring the improvement in quality of life and adaptive behaviour.
