Publication Date: 2003
Article discusses the implications surrounding late-onset disability and its potential impact on vocational assessment, job placement, and workplace accommodation and technology. The acquisition of a disability in a later stage of life can yield specific limitations, and can also have a negative impact on psychosocial adjustment. Some key issues affecting people over the age of 55 with late-onset disabilities are discussed, while recommendations are offered to rehabilitation professionals that could allow them to facilitate optimum adjustment to employment and other important life areas.
