Vocational education for students with intellectual disabilities is understood as the organization of activities to support students with intellectual disabilities to choose and develop the professional that best suits their abilities, needs and interests, and at the same time satisfy the human needs of the career fields. The data set on parents’ awareness of vocational education for students with intellectual disabilities were collected directly through surveys in four provinces which are representatives of different regions in Vietnam. Parents participating in the survey are selected according to non-random sampling, combining between quota sampling and purposive sampling methods.
