Research Questions, Aims and Qualitative Methods
The qualitative method so used in this research was thoroughly based on the interviews so conducted on the people who are having intellectual disability and also the accessibility support, which actually helped the researchers in collecting their individual perceptions. In this research for collecting an in- depth analysis, two types of methods in recruitment were used, where the employment providers of the intellectually disable people were contacted to connect with the later. On the approval from the employment providers for their participation and the consent thereof, the potential participants were contacted for the arrangement of the interview. In the second method so deployed, the study to be conducted was not passed through employment providers to the participants, but it was advertised within the community organisations, who are active in the disability sector, which actually helped in distributing the information to the potential candidates for the study, by way of direct contact or by referral from another person, or the potential individual approaches directly for the study to be conducted on them. In this second method, the potential candidates were himself or herself solely responsible for contacting the researchers for incorporating them into the study, which actually helped these people with disability to establish their choice to elect the participation of them, without the help taken from any employer providing recruitment to them, which in a way maintains the confidentiality, for those who do not want to involve their individual employers for their own decision making process (Katherine Moore, 2017).
Amongst the fifty- one participants (Meltzer, 2016), 38 people were elected for being part of the individual interview and the remaining thirteen people were dealt in a group interview, which consisted a maximum of two or three people. The topics which were considered in the interview, ranged from, current job details, to the place of their work, to the task they were allocated with, to details regarding their previous employment, which mainly focused on their decision for which they opted the job change. The main thing being considered in the interview solely entails the perception of the participants about the current employment they are into or the previous employment they have already opted out. Finally, in the interview they faced the question which was aimed to collect the feelings about an ideal job. Also, relevant questions were asked when the participant was in the transition phase (Gleeson, 2009).
Interpersonal relations were also inquired for, while establishing the relationship with other near and dear ones to be meaningful. In so doing the material wellbeing were also considered so that an idea can be grasped about earing an income or a livelihood to maintain the personal possession. Again, the question regarding the personal wellbeing highlighted their physical as well as emotional wellbeing which gave the researchers the idea that the participants have the support networks or in the lack of it and which also will help in deducing the rate of stability they have within their individual environment (Robyn Lauren Johnson, 2009). The interview questions were made so as to reflect the self-determination, which an individual must be in possession of for deciding on their choices based on the personal goals. Finally, the experience regarding the use of rights with that of the individual privacy to be maintained was also made part of the analytical study (Michelle Brotherton, 2015).
Evaluation of Success of the Research
So, the main limitations are that there is a gap between the open type of employment to that of the supported type, and there is a persistent dilemma amongst the participants regarding the possibility of the outcomes, they can achieve out of the job. They fail inadvertently, while prioritising about the choice of the employment types. People in this study demonstrated that they, only for gaining work experience works for the social enterprise and in so doing, they actually wait for the higher paid positions, available in other types of employment. So, there is the trade- offs, and they significantly fail to make a choice from one of the many types of employment, and hence the gap increases from the stability in an employment to the higher rates of pay in the other, and finally becomes an ultimate dilemma, thereby giving rise to difficulty. But, the restrictions are not limited to gaps stability in a job and higher pay, however, there is also a widening gap between the lesser number of the employment types to that far less number of employers (Anderson, 2016). As there is an absence of range of the employment types, the opportunities get lessened for the intellectually disable people, So, in order to give these people a wide range of support both personally as well as systematically, they must be at the first instance be handed with the choices, so that they can overcome any prevailing trade- offs. Thus, it is significant that a broader initiative be taken so as to minimise and eradicate this kind of social exclusion.
