Five ASHA-member speech-language pathologists have received grants from the U.S. Department of Education, part of $13.4 million in grants to colleges and universities across the country to build up special education training.
Of the grants, $9.3 million goes to training teachers and other professionals to support children with disabilities in early intervention programs, regular and special education, and related services. The remaining $4.1 million is for preparing doctoral students to take on administrator and faculty positions in those same areas.
The grants, ranging from $174,000 to $250,000, are headed to more than three dozen academic institutions. They are designed to improve services and outcomes for students with disabilities by enhancing training programs for special education personnel and leaders.
Five ASHA members received grants under this program: Raquel Anderson, Indiana University; Nancy Creaghead, University of Cincinnati; Joneen Lowman, University of Kentucky; Nancy J. Schere, Arizona State University; and Julie Wolter, University of Montana.
