Description of Project:
This training program will provide fellows with extensive research training (related to intervention development, initial efficacy, and measurement) concentrated on developmental and academic outcomes of preschool and early elementary children with or at risk for disabilities. The overarching goal of this program is to prepare four fellows (with 2 years of training each) to lead rigorous and relevant research within research-practice-partnerships (RPPs).
Training activities will be organized across four strands:

Fellows will engage in rigorous research with at least one of four active projects that aim to:
Fellows will also engage in a 4–6-month RPP with a partner organization to develop and execute a short-duration original research project. The training program will also provide fellows with a variety of PD opportunities, including directed readings, school observations, meetings with expert researchers and policymakers, training on the Institute of Education Sciences (IES) Standards for Excellence in Education Research, workshops, webinars, and coursework.
