Description

Description

Research experiences will be designed to build Fellows' capacity to conduct quality special education intervention research, apply and increase knowledge of experimental design methodology, and use of assessment tools to design learning and behavioral interventions. The focus of the training program will be on intervention research, both development and evaluation. Fellows will receive training in randomized control trials and single-subject designs. Research opportunities for fellows include (a) an evaluation of a classroom wide intervention for students with and at risk for serious behavior disorders, (b) and evaluation of a comprehensive intervention for young children with autism, (c) evaluation of an intervention package for secondary students with serious behavior disorders, and (d) the development of a professional development curriculum to improve instructional and classroom management practices.
