Completed Projects

The Center of Excellence for Disability Research (CEDR) conducts research to identify and evaluate effective services, supports, and models of coordinated care and/or integrated care for persons with disabilities. CEDR is also organizing a national conference in March 2013 to share the results of these studies, along with those of other researchers, and discuss strategies for providing effective services and care models to all people with disabilities.

Under a subcontract with Mathematica Policy Research, New Editions coordinated the Center’s technical expert panel meetings and a major national conference in 2011. We managed website development and assisted with the dissemination of research findings.

Like all Americans, adults with disabilities seek affordable and effective care that maximizes their well-being and independence. The Center’s research findings and publications will help consumers, family members, other caregivers, providers, and policy makers identify effective strategies for promoting and maintaining the health and quality of life of individuals with disabilities.

New Editions provides Section 508 support to the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA), National Agricultural Statistics Service (NASS) to develop a remediation strategy to achieve Section 508 compliance. This includes assessing the current environment and recommending appropriate tools to help NASS implement compliance auditing and remediation. In addition, we are developing processes for continuous monitoring and Section 508 audits in the software development lifecycle. New Editions is also providing training for NASS staff members on Section 508 standards the use of assessment tools.
