New Editions operates AbleData, the premier resource for objective information on assistive technology (AT) and rehabilitation equipment available from domestic and international sources, for the National Institute on Disability, Independent Living, and Rehabilitation Research (NIDILRR).

We provide program management and evaluation support to NIDILRR formative program reviews for its grantees and to its external evaluation program. We complete literature reviews, policy analyses, inventories and secondary data analyses.
