Training TA and Other Resources

As a NIDILRR grantee there exist many opportunities to receive free technical assistance through one of the KT centers. Also, annual conferences provide a great opportunity to network, stimulate new ideas, and improve your knowledge translation activities.

KTER Center
The KTER Center identifies National Institute on Disability, Independent Living, and Rehabilitation Research (NIDILRR)-funded and others’ research findings that improve the lives of individuals with disabilities. Armed with this critical research, the Center determines what informational needs are most pressing for stakeholders such as individuals with disabilities and their families, vocational rehabilitation practitioners, the business community, and policy makers.

KTDRR Center
The Center on Knowledge Translation for Disability and Rehabilitation Research (KTDRR) makes it easier to find, understand, and use the results of research that can make a positive impact on the lives of people with disabilities. Knowledge translation (KT) refers to strategies that move research into practice by improving the relevance, reporting, accessibility, interpretation, and application of research results. The KTDRR Center focuses on KT activities to support researchers in the disability and rehabilitation field.
