$10 million grant

Georgia State is getting $10 million in federal funding to start a research center aimed at improving the reading skills of deaf children. The money will go to the University’s College of Education so researchers can create assessments, develop curriculum along with instructional strategies for intervention that can be utilized across the country, especially for kindergarten, first and second grade. The five year effort includes researchers from the University of Arizona, the University of Colorado at Boulder, Arizona State University, and the Rochester Institute of Technology.
