This article reports on a qualitative interview study of successful
people with and without disabilities, asking questions such as whether
or not career success resulting from a postsecondary education results
in a better quality of life and whether that effect is different
for people with or without disabilities. Found that while
there were many common themes, choice, control, and self-determination
seemed to be a strong theme for participants with disabilities.
