Request for comments

The Interagency Committee on Disability Research (ICDR) encourages
individuals with disabilities or organizations representing individuals with
disabilities such as: 1) service providers, 2) disability and rehabilitation
research and policy groups, and 3) advocacy organizations with specialized
disability knowledge and experience, to suggest specific ways to improve
future disability and rehabilitation research to benefit individuals with
disabilities. We are also interested in hearing from individuals concerning
how well the existing federal research programs are responding to the
changing needs of individuals with disabilities. These comments can cover a
wide range of research areas, including, but not limited to, the following:

* Employment of people with disabilities
* Community integration and continuum of care
* Health disparities
* Access to assistive technology and universal design
* Transition of youth to employment and independent living
* Availability of accessible housing, transportation and

A panel of ICDR members will hear testimony during four separate meetings on
the two days listed above at the Doubletree Hotel in Arlington, VA. For
those who are unable to testify in person, testimony may be given by phone
or in writing. (Written testimony will be read as time permits.) The
meeting will also be Webcast and interested parties can observe the
proceedings live via an IP Web site.

If you are interested in giving testimony in person, by phone, or wish to
submit only written testimony, please register to that effect on the ICDR
Stakeholder Meeting Web site: http://www.icdr.us/stakeholders. Oral
testimony will be limited and will be accommodated on a first-come,
first-served basis. Please note that people who wish to observe the Webcast
without actively participating should also register.

Additional information, including the format for written and oral testimony
and deadlines for receiving comment can be found on the Web site. People
must indicate, which date and session (morning or afternoon), they wish to
partake in. Participants on the west coast will be given preference for
testimony by phone during the afternoon sessions.
