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 third of the directory, describes projects concerning technical assistance and dissemination, and parent training and information. The Technical Assistance and Dissemination program provides assistance and information to improve early intervention, educational and transitional services, and addresses systemic-change. The Parent Training and Information program aims to support training and information centers in meeting the needs of parents of children with disabilities, particularly underserved parents and parents of children who may be inappropriately identified, and assisting parents to understand the availability of procedural safeguards under the IDEA. 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)
