Abstract: “I” in the IEP, $25,000, Subcontract with the
University of Hawaii who was awarded the grant (Institute of Education Sciences
(IES), CFDA number 84.324I, application number NCSER-06-10). The AzUCD is one
of three sites (Hawaii, Alaska and Arizona) participating in this research
project. The purpose of the proposed project is to develop and obtain
preliminary evidence of the effectiveness of two intervention models. These
models are designed to equip educators, administrators, and parents with
necessary tools to support students with disabilities from indigenous cultures in
participating in their own IEP meetings through a culturally relevant process.
Staff from the AzUCD will collect data from high schools serving Native
American students with high incidence disabilities.
The AzUCD team is involved in identifying sites, obtaining IRB approvals,
and coordinating with the team from Hawaii in scheduling training for
participating high schools. This continuing project is under the supervision of
Dr. Karen Applequist.
