dc.description.abstractThis study was concerned with exploring the educational experiences and transition choices/opportunities of blind/vision impaired people in the Republic of Ireland. Until relatively recently the educational provision for blind/vision impaired children and young people occurred primarily within the special education system. Restructuring of the education system began in the 1990s leading to changes in special education including a language of inclusive education within policy initiatives. There has been a history of exclusion and missed opportunities among blind/vision impaired people within education and employment. Research has indicated a positive association between education and employment. The research questions examined in this study pertain to the educational experiences of blind/vision impaired people, the factors that impact on these experiences and, issues impacting on transition choices/opportunities.
