Orkwis, Ray; DeCarme, Judi; Glover, Jeanne
The five-volume directory describes more than 1,200 discretionary grants and contracts supported by the Research to Practice Division of the Office of Special Education Programs. The projects are grouped into sections representing the seven program areas of the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) Amendments (1997), Part D. This volume, the second of the directory, describes projects concerning personnel preparation. These projects are designed to help address state-identified needs for qualified personnel to work with children with disabilities in special and regular education, related services, and early intervention. Emphasis is on training in practices that have been determined through research and experience to be successful. The approximately 600 projects are grouped by funding competitions and include information on grant number, title, project director, beginning and ending dates, and contact information. An abstract usually describes the project's purpose, proposed method, and proposed products. Four indexes are provided: a project director index, an organization index, a state index, and a subject index. (DB)
