One of the goals of the SF-DDARIN is to facilitate high quality implementation research in which there is collaboration between academic and practice communities. As part of this we have established a programme of Masters studentships to enable field/practice based research projects that might not otherwise happen because of a lack of funding.
We are delighted to announce that 4 Studentships (Academic and Field supervisors are shown in brackets) have been awarded this year:
- Emily Wormald will be conducting a joint project between Bangor University (Carl Hughes) and Calthorpe school (Corinna Grindle):
Teaching Handwriting Skills to Children with Learning Disability.
- Alexandra Herman will be conducting a joint project between Bangor University (Carl Hughes) and ABA Tutorship (Corinna Grindle):
Effects of Behavioural Skills Training on the application of the “7 Steps of Instruction”
- Sian Thomas and a fourth student will be conducting joint projects between the University of Warwick (Vaso Totsika) and Calthorpe school (Corinna Grindle):
Teaching Early Reading Skills to Non Vocal Children with Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities using an Online Reading Program
Teaching Handwriting skills to Children with Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities
All four students will be sharing their experiences on the SF-DDARIN blog later this year. We congratulate them and wish them every success with their projects.
