The purpose of this EMWAjong study was to evaluate the psychosocial functioning, the emotional well-being and the factors affecting the vocational success and well-being in young adults with a Wajong benefit for a childhood-onset chronic somatic condition while growing up. The study was aimed at young adults with a disability benefit as a result of a somatic illness or condition. The primary research questions of this study are as follows:
1. How does the psychosocial developmental trajectory (course of life) of young adults with disability benefits as a result of a somatic condition compare to that of a reference group?
2. How does the Health Related Quality of Life (HRQoL) and anxiety and depression of young adults with disability benefits as a result of a somatic condition compare to that of reference groups?
3. What are the Illness Cognitions (IC) of young adults with disability benefits as a result of a somatic condition? Is there an association of IC with HRQoL, anxiety and depression in this study population?
4. Is there a difference in the psychosocial development trajectory of young adults with and without a disability benefit?
5. What are the disease characteristics, work characteristics, and work motivation of young adults with disability benefits as a result of chronic conditions and the association of those factors and IC with the likelihood of being employed?
