Young Deaf Adults (2003)

Perceptions of Career Planning, Goal Setting and Literacy

This research project examined barriers that young Deaf adults currently face with regard to career planning and life goal setting; young adults' perception of the significance of low literacy as a barrier to career planning and goal setting as weighted against other perceived barriers, and; young adults' perceptions of the importance of literacy, training in order to career plan or set goals.

Summarized in this document are the anecdotes of 34 Deaf and hard-of-hearing youth across Ontario. These youth represent a variety of education, class and cultural backgrounds; however, their experiences with and knowledge of goal setting and career planning are strikingly similar. None seemed to know that literacy programs can help with career planning.
