Abstract. The issue of vocational training and employment of individuals with special needs plays a vital role for their independence. For this reason, in this study the goal was to determine the opinions about vocational training and employment for mothers of children with special needs. The participants of the study were 10 mothers of children with special needs. A qualitative research method was used in the research and a semi-structured interview technique was used for data collection. The results showed that the mothers don’t find the vocational education and employment of their children with special needs sufficient and productive, that the vocational training is not planned appropriately, and that there is no transition process from school to work. This means the mothers experience problems with their children's employment and therefore it can be concluded that the schools need to come up with a solution to solve these problems of transition.

Keywords: Individuals with special needs, problems of vocational education, problems of employment problems, needs, transition from school to work
