Purpose

In FY 2017, the Institute intends to fund research focused on teachers and other instructional personnel who provide instruction for students with or at risk for disabilities. Specifically, this topic supports research on how teachers and other instructional personnel can utilize cognitive science research in ways that improve outcomes for students with or at risk for disabilities in kindergarten through Grade 12. This topic also supports research on the basic processes of adult learning, specifically for teachers and other instructional personnel to acquire, organize, and apply knowledge to support academic outcomes for students with or at risk for disabilities.
