Dr. Diane Ryndak (Specialized Education Services) received new funding from University of Kansas Center for Research, Inc. for the project “Factors Contributing to Academic, Social, and Behavioral Outcomes for Elementary Students with the Most Significant Cognitive Disabilities.”
Ryndak will oversee all aspects of the UNCG portion of the project. During Year 2 of the project, Ryndak will supervise UNCG project personnel as they collect data on students’ academic, social, and behavioral outcomes in relation to student, classroom, school, and placement factors across participating sites. In Year 3 of the project, she will participate in additional data collection, data analysis, and reporting/dissemination of findings. In both years, Ryndak will oversee graduate students assigned to collaborate on the project.
