Kellar Institute for Human DisAbilities (KIHd) - College of Education and Human Development - George Mason University
About Us

The Kellar Institute for Human DisAbilities (KIHd) is an interdisciplinary campus-based organization focusing on improving the lives and productivity of children and adults with disabilities. KIHd combines the resources of the university with local, state, regional, national, public, and private sector agencies and organizations to develop products, services, and programs for persons with disabilities.


The Kellar Institute for Human DisAbilities (KIHd) has developed a technology enhanced distance education and communication infrastructure that has spawned increasing collaboration, training and technical assistance capacity. Groups across the state can meet and work without traveling using the KIHd created Virtual Collaboration Center (VCC). This had led to the development of many programs that use distance education.
