From the National Center for Special Education Research (NCSER)

Special Education Research Grants Announced

NCSER is investing over $36 million in 21 new special education research grants. The Center received 162 research grant applications across 10 program areas focusing on improving educational outcomes for students with or at risk for disabilities.

As a group, the new research projects cover a variety of topics and age ranges—from infants and toddlers with or at risk for disabilities, to students with Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD), to children who are deaf or hard of hearing and parents of children with hearing loss. Research projects include one that focuses on developing an assessment of American Sign Language (ASL) proficiency, a project that will develop a mobile phone-based instructional program of ASL for parents of children with hearing loss, a project that will validate a behavioral and emotional screening assessment for preschool students and a project that focuses on evaluating the effectiveness of an intervention that targets social communication and emotional regulation in children with ASD in kindergarten through second grade.
