SUPPORTED EMPLOYMENT AS A PARADIGM SHIFT AND A CAUSE OF LEGITIMATION CRISIS

T. Saloviita

Disability and Society, vol. 15, 2000, p.87-98

Existing services in the learning disability field had no interest in redirecting resources to supported employment, and there was no demand from the client side either.
