Research and Evaluation at CPD
The CPD conducts a variety of research projects designed to discover, develop and validate new knowledge, better intervention techniques, and more successful training procedures that impact the lives of individuals with disabilities. Our research projects focus on many different areas, such as literacy, cost-effectiveness, biological markers for autism, social development, web accessibility, and family supports.
Staff also conduct program evaluations for federal, state and local programs serving persons with developmental disabilities to assist decision makers in program improvement.
