Program Type: Discretionary/Competitive Grants

The Individuals with Disabilities Education Act requires education institutions, in collaboration with parents (and older students), to tailor an individualized education program (IEP) for each student with a disability that meets the unique needs of that student. Too often, IEPs are created and monitored without benefit of knowledge of the latest research on education and assessment of student with disabilities. This research program focuses on the development and evaluation of training programs for IEP teams, as well as methods of managing and monitoring the IEP process, that will result in education services that are better aligned with scientifically based research and that enhance the achievement and development of students with disabilities.

(This program was run under CFDA Number 84.324I in 2006)
