Full Text of Announcement

I. Funding Opportunity Description

    Purpose of Program: The purposes of this program are to (1) Help 
address State-identified needs for highly qualified personnel--in 
special education, related services, early intervention, and regular 
education--to work with infants or toddlers with disabilities, or 
children with disabilities; and (2) ensure that those 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.
    Priority: In accordance with 34 CFR 75.105(b)(2)(v), this priority 
is from allowable activities specified in the statute (see sections 
662(d) and 681(d) of the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act 
(IDEA)).
    Absolute Priority: For FY 2007 this priority is an absolute 
priority. Under 34 CFR 75.105(c)(3), we consider only applications that 
meet this priority.
    This priority is:
    Professional Development Center: Children with Autism Spectrum 
Disorders. 
Background
    Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD), once thought to occur in 4 to 5 
out of every 10,000 individuals, is now estimated to occur in 2 to 6 of 
every 1,000 children. Two recent estimates provided by the Centers for 
Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) found rates of 3 to 6 per 1,000 
children, between the ages of 3 to 10 
(http://www.cdc.gov/ncbddd/autism/asd_common.htm).

    ASD is a complex developmental disability that affects individuals 
in the areas of communication and social interaction. In addition, 
unusual learning, attention, and sensory processing patterns are often 
present. ASD includes autistic disorder, pervasive developmental 
disorder--not otherwise specified (PDD-NOS, including atypical autism), 
and Asperger disorder. The increased number of children diagnosed with 
ASD is a serious concern for families, service providers, and policy-
makers, as existing education and other service delivery systems 
struggle to respond to the educational and other service needs of this 
population in a comprehensive manner.
    The increased incidence of ASD among children has greatly increased 
the demands placed on early intervention and educational systems due to 
the complexity of ASD, including the unique ways children with ASD 
process and respond to information, the variability of how ASD affects 
each child, and the often extreme and unusual communication and 
socialization challenges of children with ASD.
    Results from Office of Special Education Programs' (OSEP) funded 
projects and related research have demonstrated that children with ASD 
who receive intensive early intervention and educational services from 
skilled personnel often make very significant functional improvements. 
A growing body of intervention and service research points to the need 
for greater use of evidence-based practices by school and early 
intervention personnel.
Priority
    This priority supports one cooperative agreement for the 
establishment and operation of a Professional Development Center 
(Center) to provide training for district or State level professional 
development providers. Such training must be designed to: Expand the 
types and levels of services provided to children with ASD and their 
families; develop and enhance the specialization or expertise of 
providers who work with children with ASD; and provide information to 
professionals and families on the effectiveness of services for 
children with ASD.
    To meet the requirements of this priority, at a minimum, the 
project must--
    (a) Provide training to district or State level professional 
development providers in: (1) The early diagnosis of ASD, to reduce the 
numbers of children who are not being diagnosed until after they enter 
school; (2) the implementation of evidence-based practices with 
documented successful child outcomes; and (3) the implementation of 
successful service delivery and funding models designed to increase the 
coordination of services for children with ASD;
    (b) Provide training activities that are consistent with and 
supportive of Federal activities for children with ASD, such as the 
Interagency Autism Coordinating Committee (established under Pub. L. 
106-310, Title I, Section 104) (see http://www.nimh.nih.gov/autismiacc/index.cfm
 for further information); and with other Federally funded 
ASD-focused personnel training and technical assistance projects;
    (c) Develop an outreach program to identify, select, and enroll a 
variety of trainee teams that include district or State level 
professional development providers and families of children with ASD;
    (d) Describe, in the grant application, how it will identify 
training sites that are: (1) Distributed geographically in order to 
reduce both travel time and costs for trainees, and (2) willing to 
provide members of trainee teams with opportunities to see and engage 
in the identified methods and practices in authentic settings;
    (e) Provide a range of ongoing site-based training and professional 
development opportunities, through vehicles such as State and regional

[[Page 66940]]

workshops, targeted conferences, summer programs, Web-based seminars 
and dissemination of training materials developed by the Center;
    (f) Establish and maintain a network of professional development 
sites, trainees, and national consultants to inform the Center's 
activities;
    (g) Assist trainee teams in establishing a system for extending and 
evaluating the ongoing implementation of evidence-based practices and 
for monitoring the functional improvement of children with ASD; and
    (h) Collect follow-up data on the extent to which the targeted 
evidence-based practices are used or promoted by trainees and the 
extent to which the trainee teams have leveraged knowledge and skills 
acquired through the Center's training to increase individual or 
community capacity to provide evidence-based practices for children 
with ASD.
    In addition, projects funded under this absolute priority must--
    (a) Budget for one three-day Project Directors' meeting in 
Washington, DC during each year of the project and an additional 
meeting with the OSEP Project Officer and other appropriate staff in 
Washington, DC within the first two months of the project to clarify 
project activities and develop a strategic plan;
    (b) Budget five percent of the grant amount annually to support 
emerging needs as identified jointly through consultation with the OSEP 
project officer; and
    (c) Maintain a Web site that includes relevant information and 
documents in a format that meets a government or industry-recognized 
standard for accessibility.
Fourth and Fifth Years of the Project
    In deciding whether to continue funding the Center for the fourth 
and fifth years, the Secretary will consider the requirements of 34 CFR 
75.253(a) and, in addition--
    (a) The recommendation of a review team consisting of experts 
selected by the Secretary, which review will be conducted during the 
last half of the project's second year in Washington, DC. Projects must 
budget for travel expenses associated with this one-day intensive 
review;
    (b) The timeliness and effectiveness with which all requirements of 
the negotiated cooperative agreement have been or are being met by the 
Center;
    (c) The degree to which the project's activities have contributed 
to changed practice among professional development providers and others 
targeted by training and professional development activities; and
    (d) The degree to which the project's activities have contributed 
to improved outcomes for children with ASD.
    Waiver of Proposed Rulemaking: Under the Administrative Procedure 
Act (APA) (5 U.S.C. 553) the Department generally offers interested 
parties the opportunity to comment on a proposed priority. However, 
section 681(d) of IDEA makes the public comment requirements of the APA 
inapplicable to the priority in this notice.
    Program Authority: 20 U.S.C. 1462(d) and 1481(d).
    Applicable Regulations: The Education Department General 
Administrative Regulations (EDGAR) in 34 CFR parts 74, 75, 77, 79, 80, 
81, 82, 84, 85, 86, 97, 98, and 99.

V. Application Review Information

    1. Selection Criteria: The selection criteria for this competition 
are from 34 CFR 75.210 and are listed in the application package.
    2. Treating A Priority As Two Separate Competitions: In the past, 
there have been problems in finding peer reviewers without conflicts of 
interest for competitions in which many entities throughout the country 
submit applications. The Standing Panel requirements under IDEA also 
have placed additional constraints on the availability of reviewers. 
Therefore, the Department has determined that, for some discretionary 
competitions, applications may be separated into two or more groups and 
ranked and selected for funding within the specific group. This 
procedure will ensure the availability of a much larger group of 
reviewers without conflicts of interest. It also will increase the 
quality, independence, and fairness of the review process and permit 
panel members to review applications under discretionary competitions 
for which they have also submitted applications. However, if the 
Department decides to select for funding an equal number of 
applications in each group, this may result in different cut-off points 
for fundable applications in each group.

VI. Award Administration Information

    1. Award Notices: If your application is successful, we notify your 
U.S. Representative and U.S. Senators and send you a Grant Award 
Notification (GAN). We may also notify you informally.
    If your application is not evaluated or not selected for funding, 
we notify you.
    2. Administrative and National Policy Requirements: We identify 
administrative and national policy requirements in the application 
package and reference these and other requirements in the Applicable 
Regulations section of this notice.
    We reference the regulations outlining the terms and conditions of 
an award in the Applicable Regulations section of this notice and 
include these and other specific conditions in the GAN. The GAN also 
incorporates your approved application as part of your binding 
commitments under the grant.
    3. Reporting: At the end of your project period, you must submit a 
final performance report, including financial information, as directed 
by the Secretary. If you receive a multi-year award, you must submit an 
annual performance report that provides the most current performance 
and financial expenditure information as specified by the Secretary in 
34 CFR 75.118.
    4. Performance Measures: Under the Government Performance and 
Results Act (GPRA), the Department has developed measures that will 
yield information on various aspects of the technical assistance and 
dissemination activities currently being supported under Part D of 
IDEA. These measures will be used for the Professional Development 
Center: Children with Autism Spectrum Disorders competition. The 
measures are: the percentage of products and services deemed to be of 
high quality by an independent review panel of qualified

[[Page 66943]]

experts or individuals with appropriate expertise to review the 
substantive content of the products and services; the percentage of 
products and services deemed to be of high relevance to educational and 
early intervention policy or practice by an independent review panel of 
qualified members of the target audiences of the technical assistance 
and dissemination; and the percentage of all products and services 
deemed to be of high usefulness by target audiences to improve 
educational or early intervention policy or practice.
