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.

KIHd system prototype, after an extensive performance and needs analysis, was created by the GMU faculty in collaboartion with the GMU Instructional Technology Program Immersion Team in 2004.

The IDD MEd Full-time Immersion Program is an option within the Instructional Design and Development track of the Instructional Technology Master's program. The Immersion Program is designed to allow teams of 8-10 full-time students to immerse themselves in several project-based experiences that require them to utilize their instructional design, development, and management skills through authentic practice.

The students in the Immersion Team tracked their progress and posted the results of surveys, meetings meetings and project reports online. Click here to visit their website.
