Education: Disability Research



National Communication Association Caucus on Disability Issues describe their two goals behind the establishment of the National Communication Association's Caucus on Disability Issues as:

NCA holds a national convention each year. Every year the Caucus invites program proposals and research papers exploring any aspect of issues related to disability and communication, and it especially encourages programs that will promote participation by people with disabilities. The Caucus invites innovative or alternative formats as well as more traditional paper and panel presentations. These program proposals and research papers are presented and discussed at the national conventions. For more information on the NCA, previous research papers, the Caucus or other disability information, visit their website.

National Institute on Disability and Rehabilitation Research (NIDRR) is sponsored by the United States Department of Education's Office of Special Education and Rehabilitative Services (OSERS). They conduct comprehensive and coordinated programs of research and related activities to maximize the full inclusion, social integration, employment, and independent living of disabled individuals of all ages.
