Title of Collaborative Activity:

Interagency Subcommittee on Education (ISED) of the Interagency Committee on Disability Research (ICDR)

Description of Collaborative Activity:

The Interagency Committee on Disability Research (ICDR) is mandated to promote interagency coordination, collaboration, and communication. It must identify, assess, and seek to coordinate all Federal programs, activities, and projects, and plans for such programs, activities, and projects with respect to the conduct of research (including assistive technology research and research that incorporates the principles of universal design) related to rehabilitation of individuals with disabilities. The committee facilitates the effective exchange of information on disability and rehabilitation research activities among its member agencies. We coordinate activities that span the areas of assistive technology and universal design; medical rehabilitation; data and statistics; employment; health disparities, and education. The Interagency Subcommittee on Education (ISED), a subcommittee of ICDR, focuses on issues related to the education of persons with disabilities by collecting input from stakeholders to inform planning; identifying emerging research areas; assessing research gaps, synergies and duplications; and making recommendations to inform the federal research agenda.
