Gillis/Kang/La Paro/Scott-Little

Dr. Margaret Gillis, Dr. Jean Kang (Specialized Education Services), Dr. Karen La Paro and Dr. Catherine Scott-Little (Human Development and Family Studies) received a grant from the U.S. Department of Education Office of Special Education Programs to help meet the need for highly qualified professionals with the knowledge and skills to deliver services to high-need children aged birth to five with disabilities. Beginning in January 2015, the project “Preparing Post-Baccalaureate Early Interventionists/Early Childhood Educators for Working with ALL Children” will recruit, retain, and prepare 44 scholars over five years in the Birth-Kindergarten Initial Licensure post-baccalaureate certificate program to implement responsive, evidence-based practices in their work with young children with and without disabilities to improve child outcomes. Scholars will participate in coursework and extensive field experiences in early intervention and inclusive settings focused on individualizing to meet the needs of all young children, as well as mentoring and induction activities.
