The Georgia State University Postdoctoral Research Training in Language and Literacy Interventions with Special Populations trains postdoctoral fellows by offering them individualized research experiences within the context of interdisciplinary research teams. The program is housed within the Center for Research in Atypical Development and Learning, which includes program faculty from psychology, special education, public policy, and communication disorders. Currently, faculty members have externally funded research projects designed to empirically validate education interventions to promote language or literacy development in special populations, that is, children, adolescents, or adults at risk for or with identified disabilities. All projects include random assignment to intervention and control conditions in field settings and represent interventions with students who vary in age and type of disability.
