Preparation of Special Education, Early Intervention, and Related Services Leadership Personnel
KU Researchers in Intensive Interventions, Tiered systems, and Evidence-based practices (KU RITE) is focused on preparing a cadre of five scholars to assume leadership roles in teacher education, research, and service in higher education, with the specific expertise necessary to conduct rigorous inquiry into evidence-based practices (EBPs) to effectively and efficiently meet the needs of students with disabilities: particularly those with the most intensive educational needs. Scholars will be fully prepared to support the identification and advancement of EBPs via research activities and prepare future educators to utilize these EBPs within and beyond tiered systems in partnership with the general education community.
