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:

Teaching Handwriting Skills to Children with Learning Disability.

Effects of Behavioural Skills Training on the application of the “7 Steps of Instruction”

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.
