The Center on Knowledge Translation for Employment Research (KTER Center), operated by SEDL in partnership with VCU, has been carrying out a variety of research activities related to the employment of people with disabilities. KTER staff have been conducting interviews, focus groups, and surveys with selected vocational agencies, people with disabilities, business people, researchers, and policy makers to learn about their use of evidence-based practices and the strategies that work best for them to get research into use.

Dissemination activities include a website, www.kter.org, with information for a variety of audiences, and presence on Facebook and Twitter.
