This State-of-the-Science conference will showcase research from three NIDRR-funded employment rehabilitation research and training centers. A common theme underlying these RRTCs is a commitment to conducting research that enhances the scientific evidence to reduce the employment gap between people with and without disabilities. These RRTCs contribute to addressing this theme in three different ways:

  • The RRTC-EBP VR provides practitioners with knowledge and tools for evidence-based vocational rehabilitation practices to improve employment rates and quality of employment outcomes within the state/federal vocational rehabilitation system.
  • The EPM-RRTC investigates the impact of government policies and programs on employment outcomes and facilitates translation of this knowledge for policy and program administration practices that reduce work disincentives, increase participation in employment service programs and improve coordination between employment services and safety net programs.
  • The IC-RRTC is utilizing the enormous variation in employment outcomes among people with disabilities to understand which individuals fare relatively well with respect to employment and why to build an evidence base needed to improve strategies and interventions for attaining better employment outcomes for the various subpopulations of people with disabilities.
