Graduate preparation for transition and instructional leadership for services to students with low incidence disabilities: Emphasis on academic and social success in LRE through implementation of evidence-based practices and instructional programming  

This project will prepare post-baccalaureate scholars who are competent to provide transition and instructional leadership for services to children/youth with low incidence disabilities (i.e, traumatic brain injury, autism, and significant cognitive impairments), their families, and school personnel to ensure positive learning experiences. Emphasis will be on academic and social success in the least restrictive environment through implementation of evidence-based practices and instructional programming. Throughout each of the four years of the program, a minimum of five full- and five part-time grant-funded scholars will be recruited. In order to meet the needs of children/youth with low incidence disabilities, the program gives consideration to the: (a) unique abilities each individual possesses; (b) needs of the family members; and (c) the needs of school personnel. Hence, six priorities are emphasized (behavior, mental health, cognitive functioning, families, school, and transition) all of which are common elements in comprehensive programming for children/youth with low incidence disabilities. A minimum of 65% of the funds requested in this project are for direct student support. Project Status
