Chapter 11: Career development for young adults with disabilities: an intersectional analysis

Laurie Gutmann Kahn, Edwin Obilo Achola and Tiana Povenmire-Kirk


Although young adults with disabilities face increased barriers towards career development, individuals with disabilities are not a heterogeneous group. Utilizing an intersectional framework allows us to understand the barriers and unique experiences of young adults with disabilities as they engage in career development. This chapter explores how disability interacts with other marginalized individual and group identities (such as race, language and gender) for young adults with disabilities in the context of their career development. Implications for career development professionals and policy development are provided.
