Orkwis, Ray; DeCarme, Judi; Glover, Jeanne
This book is a directory of about 1,100 discretionary projects supported by the Office of Special Education Programs and focuses on projects concerned with research, innovation, and evaluation. This first volume of four presents projects categorized in the following two discretionary programs: "Research and Innovation To Improve Services and Results for Children with Disabilities," and "Studies and Evaluations." The Research and Innovation program aims to produce, and advance the use of, knowledge to improve the services provided under the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act. 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 early intervention services to infants and toddlers with or at risk for disabilities. Projects are grouped within the specific programs and competitions under which they were funded. Provided for each listing is the following information: grant number, project title, project director, address and other contact information, beginning and ending dates, and an abstract presenting the project's intended purpose, method, and products. Four indexes enhance access: a project director index, an organization index, a state index, and a subject index. (DB)
