Postdoctoral Research Training in Language and Literacy Interventions with Special Populations
» The Georgia State University Postdoctoral Research Training in Language and Literacy Interventions with Special Populations trains postdoctoral fellows by offering them individualized research experiences within the context of interdisciplinary teams. The program is housed within an interdisciplinary center, the Center for Research in Atypical Development and Learning, and includes program faculty from psychology, special education, public policy, and communication disorders. Currently, faculty members have externally-funded research projects designed to empirically validate educational interventions to promote language or literacy development in special populations, that is, children, adolescents, or adults at risk for or with identified disabilities. All projects include randomized assignment to educational interventions in field settings, and represent interventions with students who vary in age and type of disability.
