We studied the school-to-work transition needs of blind college graduates in this qualitative research. The data was collected within 14 months. We interviewed 3 blind college graduates and 8 persons who were helped them during the transition process. Our main conclusions were as the following. We found that stereotypes affected what kinds of work they wanted, and the development of their transition process. The 3 blind college graduates had their specific transition needs, which could be categorized into 3 domains. First, they needed a job. The attitudes and methods of their seeking jobs and the consideration of the employers took important roles in blind college graduates’ getting jobs. 3 blind college graduates acquired work skills by employing related resources in self-determining ways. They needed job accommodation services as well. They would have such serv ices by proposing proper solution, asking related agencies to providing such services, or getting support from colleagues, employers and friends .Secondly, they needed transportation. Therefore, they learned orientation and mobility skills, and country-dwellers had stronger needs in bus services than town-dwellers did. Finally, they also needed recreational activities. Hence, they enjoyed a variety of recreational activities with friends to make their lives more pleasant. In addition, we stated some research limitation, and had some suggestions for future studies.
