About the Webcast

As a follow-up to her KT Conference presentation on Nov. 3, Melanie Barwick was available to assist NIDILRR grantees on KT planning and measurement, using the KT Planning Template© (KTPT).

Dr. Barwick briefly describes the purpose and use of the KTPT, and primarily focused on responding to grantee experiences using this tool for planning, implementation, and measuring outcomes.
