Grant to Fund Work with High Needs Schools, Students

The Women and Philanthropy organization on campus awarded a grant to the Department of Early Childhood, Special Education and Rehabilitation Counseling. The $44,620 grant will fund five master’s degree students in the new Master of Science in Applied Behavior Analysis program directed by Dr. Allan Allday. The students will be working in high-needs schools with children and youth exhibiting challenging behaviors. Through the program, students will provide behavioral assessment and intervention support to teachers, parents and other adults working with children with emotional/behavioral disabilities, autism spectrum disorder, intellectual disabilities or other conditions that may impact a child’s academic and social functioning.
