Grants and Contracts Details

Description

The University of Kentucky in collaboration with The University of Missouri and Emporia State University and in partnership with state education and library agencies in three states proposes a three-year exploratory stage research project in the Lifelong Learning project category, to investigate the availability and scope of existing public and school library services and programs designed to address the needs of young children with disabilities and/or developmental delays and their families. The Services for Children of All Abilities in Libraries: An Exploration (SCALE) project will provide data to support the value of libraries, both public and school, in meeting the needs of young children with disabilities and developmental delays and also provide information to help librarians tailor programs and services to meet the needs of various stakeholders within the early intervention and special education communities.
