AccessINCLUDES, funded by the National Science Foundation (NSF), links to the NSF INCLUDES Network by sharing knowledge and results from other NSF disability-focused projects and their network organizations in order to make the INCLUDES Network better prepared to
- address disability-related issues in their research (e.g., design interventions to be accessible; recruit, support, and report outcomes for participants with disabilities);
- make meetings, trainings, courses, and other project activities welcoming and accessible to individuals with disabilities;
- design project resources and products to be accessible to individuals with disabilities; and
- develop durable, new collaborations between multiple stakeholders and organizations that lead to future innovative projects and resources that are inclusive of individuals with disabilities.
