Description

Description

This project will develop a faculty preparation track in the School Psychology (SP) doctoral program at the University of Utah. The program aims to help reduce shortages in faculty through the use of a scientist-practitioner training model, with emphasis on empirically-based practices with children who have a wide range of disabilities. While the project will prepare candidates to address all disability areas, its primary focus will be on preparing faculty who are experts in autism. The majority of the faculty involved in this program are also involved in autism research and supervision of students working with this population. The curriculum and model of training to be used are designed to ensure that GPRA requirements can be met. Specifically, the training of highly qualified faculty that will enhance training of practitioners who, in turn, can help ensure the implementation of NCLB and the improvement of student achievement in reading, math, and science. Further, faculty training will help ensure that there are school psychologists available to work with educators, including teachers, to implement scientifically supported methods, including those that are effective with children who have a wide range of disabilities, including autism, traumatic brain injury, and emotional and behavioral disorders.
