The National Clearinghouse on Rehabilitation Training Materials, sponsored by the Rehabilitation Services Administration, is hosted by Utah State University. They serve the profession of Vocational Rehabilitation as a centralized resource for the development, collection, dissemination, and utilization of training materials; as a forum for advancing knowledge through applied research and open dialog; and as a marketplace for career and staff development. The NCRTM grant ended on March 31, 2014, but many resources are still available online during the transition period to a new clearinghouse.
Street Leverage is a widely-read blog, where interpreters submit articles and engage in online discussion about critical trends in the field. "StreetLeverage is committed to the belief that it is often the most obvious and important realities that are the hardest to see and talk about. To that end, StreetLeverage endeavors to spotlight interpreters and industry stakeholders who courageously share their ideas and perspectives in an effort to rethink the way we understand, practice, and tell the story of the sign language interpreter."Visual Learning & Visual Learning - A Science of Learning Center
