Writing in the January edition of Disability Rehabilitation, Dr. Huang and colleagues from the Graduate Institute of Rehabilitation Counseling, National Changhua University of Education , Changhua , Taiwan look at Employment outcomes of adults with cerebral palsy in Taiwan. The group found that the employment rate for adults with CP is 22.9% with 67% of these individuals working in an integrated setting, 14% in supported employment, and 19% in sheltered employment.

The group consider that age, CP diagnosis, educational attainment, and functional performance all contribute to employment outcomes and suggest more research to determine which effective medical and vocational rehabilitation interventions improve employ ability of people with CP.
