This study explored obstacles that impact the application of Knowledge Translation in activities for Individuals with Developmental Disabilities in Iran. The sample consisted of forty-six stakeholders whose roles include those of researchers, policymakers, parents, practitioners and administrators who participated in a focus group discussion on factors that promote and interfere with the successful application of KT strategies after introducing the stakeholders to the KT framework and assessing KT capacity via a validated instrument.
The results showed that the most important factors that have an impact on the implementation of KT strategies include relationships and interaction between parents and practitioners as facilitators and lack of resources, time and incentives as obstacles to the use of KT strategies in IDD-related matters.
Although all groups valued research, there were statistically significant differences among the stakeholder groups related to practicing, applying and using research information. 
The authors conclude that researchers should establish close interactions with stakeholder groups to find out about research findings on policy and practice upon which KT strategies can be developed.
