Wright State gets $3 million to help teachers of disabled

Thanks to my father Dr. C. Richard Dorn for drawing my attention to this article from last weekend's Columbus (Ohio) Dispatch.

Doctoral students at Wright State University will be able to concentrate on technology-based methods for teaching disabled students, thanks to a $3 million National Science Foundation grant. A team of more than 20 faculty members will create the concentration during the five- year grant. Research under the program will center on how to create experiences for the disabled that allow them to overcome obstacles in their lives and learning. The new concentration will operate through one of four Ph.D. programs at the Dayton school.
