RRTI has participated in the development and implementation of research studies that result in policy changes, evidence-based practices, and new programs.

If you are interested in conducting a research study with outcomes that will create or enhance services and supports to individuals with disabilities, please contact RRTI at


Research activities sponsored by RRTI are focused on the objectives of the NYSRA divisions, as well as the overall membership legislative agenda. Research review boards will be established to oversee all RRTI research activities. These review boards will ensure that design protocols and outcome evaluations are conducted within professional and ethical guidelines.
