Orkwis, Ray; DeCarme, Judi; Glover, Jeanne
This five-volume directory describes almost 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 five sections representing the seven program areas of the newly reauthorized Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA), Part D. This volume, the first of the directory, describes projects concerning research, innovation, and evaluation. The Research and Innovation program aims to produce and advance knowledge to improve the practices of professionals and others involved in providing services, and to improve educational results for children with disabilities. The Studies and Evaluations program is designed to assess the effectiveness of state and local efforts to provide a free, appropriate public education to children with disabilities, and to provide early intervention services to infants and toddlers with disabilities or who are at-risk of developmental delays. The projects are grouped by the competitions under which they were funded and include information on grant number, title, project director, beginning and ending dates, and contact information. An abstract describes the project's purposes, proposed methods, and proposed products. Four indexes are provided: a project director index, an organizational index, a state index, and a subject index. (CR)
