Core Function: Technical Assistance and Outreach Training

The Center for Technology and Disability Studies (CTDS) provides technical assistance, policy analysis, and implementation to the Washington State Department of Services for the Blind (DSB), primarily related to its Independent Living Program (ILP) and the Braille Literacy Project. CTDS staff members assist the ILP by developing and monitoring subcontracts with community providers and by providing technical assistance regarding development and implementation of an online case recording system, including provider training. CTDS also assists in the development, implementation and monitoring of the ILP Strategic Plan and Government Management Accountability and Performance (GMAP) and represents the DSB on the Washington State Independent Living Council.

Additionally, CTDS provides DSB with technical assistance and referral on matters related to Access Technology, ADA, proposed legislation, and interpretation of laws related to disability and employment issues. CTDS also provides ongoing consultation and technical assistance focused on conceptualizing and big-picture perspectives for the executive team.
