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 second of the directory, describes projects concerning personnel preparation. These projects are designed to help address state-identified needs for qualified personnel in special education, related services, early intervention, and regular education to work with children with disabilities. Emphasis is on ensuring that personnel have the skills and knowledge, derived from practices that have been determined through research and experience to be successful, that are needed to serve those children. 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)
