The purpose of the NARRTC (formerly known as the National Association of Rehabilitation Research and Training Centers) is to improve the quality of life, independence of life choices, and the inclusion of individuals with disabilities and their families through relevant research, training, technical assistance, knowledge translation, development and demonstration activities.
NARRTC members are current projects funded through the National Institute on Disability and Rehabilitation Research (NIDILRR). The ultimate mission of NARRTC is to promote the full inclusion of persons with disabilities in American society.
NARRTC 38th Annual Conference is an opportunity for NIDILRR grantees to share the latest research findings, training and knowledge translation methodologies and results related to enhancing interventions, programs or systems to improve the lives of people with disabilities.
