Mathematica works closely with its partners to design solutions intended to improve the lives of people with disabilities.
Although the aspirations of people with disabilities keep pace with the opportunities created by advances in medicine and technology, policy and practice often lag behind—in part because stakeholders lack the information they need to make informed decisions. At Mathematica, we are building the evidence base to drive future advances and collaborating with our public and private partners to design and implement programs and policies to support people with disabilities.
Our dedication to advancing disability policy and programs is embodied in our Center for Studying Disability Policy, established in 2007. Our multidisciplinary teams understand the complexities facing public- and private-sector leaders in designing and operating programs that serve people with disabilities, as well as the challenges faced by people with disabilities in interacting with those programs.
