UVM Green looking out towards Old Mill

Relevant, accessible disability research,
with real-world impact

We conduct research and provide evaluation services to connect the dots between best practices for disability advocacy and the real world.

We share research as narrated videos, plain-text .pdfs, and illustrated guides.

We share research in plain language. Research that we conduct, as well as research done by other institutions that we think makes a difference.
