ADA Network – Knowledge Translation Center
Core Function: Technical Assistance and Outreach Training
The purpose of the ADA Network Knowledge Translation Center (ADA Network – KTC) is to ensure that information and products developed and identified through the 10 ADA regional centers are of high quality, based on the best available research evidence, and are deployed effectively to multiple key stakeholders. The ADA Network – KTC develops processes and technology to facilitate highly collaborative and efficient progress to accomplishing these goals. Stakeholders include: employers, researchers, educators, policy makers, staff of state and local government agencies, individuals with disabilities, family members, and project staff in the ADA regional centers and other related federal and privately-funded organizations.
To achieve this purpose the ADA Network-KTC will:
- Optimize the efficiency and impact of the ADA National Network's training, technical assistance, and information dissemination.
- Increase the use of available ADA-related research findings to inform behavior, practices, or policies that improve equal access in society for individuals with disabilities.
- Increase awareness and utilization of ADA-related research findings by appropriate ADA stakeholder groups.
- Improve understanding of ADA stakeholders' need for and receipt of ADA Network Services over time, including services to address emerging issues related to compliance with ADA requirements.
