FLOREZ GARCIA, Mª de los Ángeles. Programs of job integration for persons with hearing disability: a concrete experience in the Principality of Asturias. Psychosocial Intervention [online]. 2008, vol.17, n.3, pp.281-297. ISSN 1132-0559.
This issue features a specific employment program for persons with hearing impairment taking place in Asturias (Spain). The procedures and dates that follow occurred between 1998 and 2002. Our job focused primarily on young hearing impaired persons, their families and non-specifically targeted companies, but we also have worked in other areas. We believe that the results achieved show: 1) that hearing impaired persons can compete successfully in the work market on their own merits and needing only little advice and support and 2) and need stability for these projects based on the excellent results achieved.
