Last week the National Institute on Disability and Rehabilitation Research (NIDRR) released a Notice of its Proposed Long-Range Plan for Fiscal Years 2010 through 2014.

BIAA agrees with analysis conducted by Bobby Silverstein, a principal at Powers Pyles Sutter & Verville PC, that the proposed long-range plan is flawed in that it materially departs from previous plans by focusing on one category of research (employment) rather than on all three congressionally directed areas of research (health and function, employment and community participation).

BIAA is committed to working to restore the longstanding balance in the type of disability and rehabilitation research that NIDRR supports, and has accepted a position on the NIDDR working group within the Disability and Rehabilitation Research Coalition or DRRC.
