Glover, Jeanne; DeCarme, Judi; Orkwis, Ray
This book is the first of four volumes in a directory of more than 1,000 discretionary grants and contracts supported by the Research to Practice Division of the Office of Special Education Programs. This volume focuses on projects concerned with research, innovation, and evaluation divided into two broad 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 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 to provide 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. The following information is provided for each listing: 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 are provided: a project director index; an organization index; a state index; and a subject index. (DB)
