Abstract

The present study examines the mediation effect of career decision self-efficacy on bridging the association between social support and career adaptability in individuals with special needs. Measurements of career adaptability, career decision self-efficacy and social support were by conducted using the Career Adapt-Abilities Scale (CAAS) [4], Career Decision-Making Self-Efficacy–Short Form (CDSE-SF) [21] and the verbal persuasion and vicarious experience dimensions of the Career Exploration and Decision Learning Experience (CEDLE) scales [6]. The study involved 210 individuals with special needs including visual impairment, hearing impairment and physical disability. Statistical analysis was performed via a multiple regression with mediation role tests analyzed using the PROCESS macro developed by Hayes [35]. The results demonstrated that career decision self-efficacy sucessfully mediate the relationship between social support from family, friends, and teachers in developing career adaptability. The study concludes that family, friends, and teachers have a significant role in developing the confidence of individuals with special needs to determine which career path they will take. This also influences their ability to adapt to changes in the working environment.
