Language and Vocabulary Development -- Special Education Research
The Institute intends to address the need for education interventions to improve language and vocabulary development of students with disabilities through its Language/Vocabulary research program.
The program will support research to develop and evaluate the effectiveness of interventions aimed at enhancing vocabulary growth and independent reading/writing for students with disabilities. The Institute also recognizes the need for and seeks applications to develop measures that are technically sound, sensitive to instruction, and permit an analysis of vocabulary growth and development in different linguistic units at different points in time.
