SLOCUM, Sophia. Employment opportunities for people with disabilities in Alajuela, Costa Rica. Cuadernos de Investigación UNED [online]. 2018, vol.10, n.1, pp.110-113. ISSN 1659-4266.

There are over 400 000 people with disabilities in Costa Rica, but there is almost no published research on their employment. To identify employment opportunities, I interviewed 23 participants in the training program of a foundation in Alajuela, Costa Rica (students, professors and mothers). I found that they have insufficient opportunities because of social attitudes and communication barriers, often limiting them to entry-level and low paying jobs.

Keywords : People with disabilities; employment; Costa Rica; opportunities.
