Expanded Populations Research Agenda for Description (EPRAD)

Bridge Multimedia is collaborating with the VDRDC and the DLN to develop EPRAD, a research road map to identify the critical questions that will improve our evidence-based understanding of how description may apply to the education of students with non-visual disabilities such as ADHD and autism.

Bridge’s work on the Expanded Populations Research Agenda for Description (EPRAD) will identify the concrete research questions necessary to quantitatively assess the value of description for these expanded populations. EPRAD also dovetails with the Visual-Impairment Research Agenda for Description (VIRAD) being developed by NCAM in collaboration with the Video Description Research and Development Center and the Description Leadership Network.
