Gallaudet University Receives Grant Award Funding from the U.S. Department of Education for the Program Widening the Bottleneck: Training Highly Qualified Teachers to Serve Culturally and Linguistically Diverse Deaf Students
The Office of Sponsored Programs wishes to congratulate Dr. Amy Hile, principal investigator on her award from the U.S. Department of Education in the amount of $248,526.
Summary of the Project
This project seeks to increase the number of fully credentialed professional school counselors available to high-need deaf and hard of hearing children ages birth through 21, including those who are deaf-blind and those with secondary disabilities. Project scholars are professionals working in the field of deaf education, who come from all over the country and will impact changes nationally, in both rural and urban schools. This project's goals are to increase the number of fully credentialed deaf and minority school counselors with multicultural competencies by making the MA degree more accessible through a hybrid program of studies and further enhance the qualifications of these scholars by giving them skills in collaboration and leadership to work with early intervention teams with deaf and hard of hearing infants, toddlers, and their families, through an interdisciplinary hybrid program of studies.
