This research was a qualitative research in the form of case study. The researcher used in-depth interview as the main data collection technique. The results of the research showed that DCTT was made because of employment rate for people with disabilities in Yogyakarta, Indonesia. As a consequence of globalization industry which is competitive, the existence of people with disabilities becomes less recognizable.
