Preschools often lack a system for modifying their curriculum for children with disabilities. A new three-year, $1.5 million grant to Eva Horn, professor of special education at the University of Kansas, will make it possible for educators to provide a more appropriate and challenging curriculum for preschoolers with disabilities and help them be better prepared for kindergarten.
Funded by the Institute of Education Sciences in the U.S. Department of Education, the project will develop, refine and test a comprehensive curriculum framework so children with or at significant risk for disabilities can participate and make meaningful progress in preschool.
