Research & Training Center on
Independent Living


Our mission is to further independent living (IL) for people with disabilities by collaborating with consumers on research that is relevant to their lives and by using innovative methods to disseminate knowledge.


Now is always the time to prepare for an emergency, especially for people with disabilities. We offer publications, videos and trainings to assist you in preparing for natural and man-made disasters.

Also, don't forget to consider the safety of your service animal and pets in the event of a disaster. One way to prepare for the unexpected is to complete an identification form for each of your animals.

For a quick overview, watch our emergency preparedness videos to learn what you need to have on hand and the steps you can take be ready for the unexpected.


People with disabilities still face many barriers to living and participating in their community. The Research and Training Center on Promoting Interventions for Community Living (RTC/PICL) is building on two evidence-based interventions to increase their community participation.

Since participation begins at home, the Home Usability Program helps people learn how to modify their home environments to support their needs.

The Out and About program enhances the personal skills of people with disabilities so they may pursue opportunities in the community that they choose.

This Center also promotes the dissemination and utilization of other successful practices that enhance participation.
