The mission of the Rehabilitation Research and Training Center (RRTC) on Employment for People with Physical Disabilities is to research and promote positive employment outcomes for people with physical disabilities.

The Center will investigate how chronic pain affects employment; identify the barriers to and facilitators of job retention; develop strategies that support employment for people with progressive neurological disorders; and create evidence-based decision support for requesting reasonable accommodations under the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA).

Partners on this RRTC include Northwestern University, the University of Washington, Seattle, the University of Illinois at Chicago and the Great Lakes and Pacific Northwest regional ADA centers.

This RRTC is supported by a five-year, $4.375 million grant from the National Institute on Disability, Independent Living, and Rehabilitation Research (NIDILRR).
