Abstract

This presentation outlines enablers and barriers to participation in learning and preparation for future employability for students with blindness and low vision in Australian mainstream secondary schools. Using a bioecological systems approach, groups of stakeholders were interviewed. The study showed that there are many different personal circumstance and contextual influences for students when accessing learning and preparing for employment. Recommendations are made for future consideration.
