VKC UCEDD Research & Evaluation

UCEDD faculty and staff conduct research that aims to improve disability services and policies, and to identify causes of disabilities and novel ways to intervene and provide support for persons with disabilities and their families. We partner with our Community Advisory Council, State and community agencies, and families to identify pressing but under-studied topics. We also use existing large database to identify research and policy issues. We strive to integrate service, training, research, and dissemination across all UCEDD projects.
