Business Technical Working Group

The KTER Center had three TWGs to provide guidance and feedback on research activities. TWG areas of focus were (1) employment of transition-age youth and young adults with disabilities, (2) employment of adults with autism spectrum disorders, and (3) business. These TWGs helped recruit focus group participants for the first set of research activities related to identifying pressing needs, help develop instruments and protocols, participate in webcasts, and promoted the KTER Center’s products to their partners and stakeholders.
