THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN WORK AND HEALTH IN PERSONS WITH USHER SYNDROME TYPE 2
This Swedish study investigated physical and psychological health in persons with Usher syndrome type 2, comparing those who worked with those receiving disability pensions. 67 adults with USH2 filled out a questionnaire. Results showed a high level of physical health problems in both the working and disability pension groups. Participants receiving a disability pension had significantly poorer psychological health than those who were employed. The study highlights the need for early rehabilitation, vocational training, and opportunities to access the labor market for people with USH2.
