2010-2015 NIDILRR RRTC Grant

Rehabilitation Research and Training Center (RRTC) on Employment Outcomes for Individuals who are Blind or Visually Impaired

The overarching theme of the six research projects funded under the RRTC grant by the National Institute on Disability, Independent Living, and Rehabilitation Research (NIDILRR) was evaluating the most common barriers and facilitators to employment for this population. The projects involve developing and evaluating new and existing employment interventions and practices, with the ultimate goal of improving competitive employment outcomes and other indicators of employment success for individuals who are legally blind. We have been working on the six research projects described below since receiving the grant in October 2010.

Each research project includes training, technical assistance, and dissemination components. Click the links below to learn more about these elements of the 2010-2015 RRTC on Employment Outcomes for Individuals who are Blind or Visually Impaired:
