Abstract

The ratio of the disabled population is higher in Turkish society than the world average. Previous studies on this topic have been limited to statistical surveys and no firm theoretical bases have been established in the investigation of the perception of disability in Turkish society. Approximately 8.5 million disabled citizens in Turkey - about 12 % of the overall population - face many difficulties, the greatest of which is unemployment.
