Abstract

This concept paper describes the issues concerning people with special needs, the category of people with special needs, education provided for people with special needs, the issue of unemployment faced by people with special needs of learning disabilities and the effects of unemployment on these special needs on themselves, families, communities and countries. The special needs or also known as people with disability (PWD) are individuals who have a lack of physical, mental, intellectual or sensory impairments in the long run where they are unable to commit fully and effectively to the society if they are faced with obstacles or problems.  The findings from the literature review show that there is an issue of unemployment among people with special needs in learning disabilities. Thus, research to improve the employability skills for people with special needs of learning disability has to be done to address this problem by taking into account factors that affect unemployed people with special needs of learning disabilities.
