Debbie Golos, Ph.D.

Debbie Golos, associate professor in the Department of Educational Psychology’s special education program and coordinator of the Deaf/Hard of Hearing (DHH) teaching licensure and M.Ed., has been awarded $1.2 million over five years by the U.S. Department of Education (USDE) Office of Special Education and Rehabilitative Services.

Project PACT: Preparation about Collaborative Teaching, offers funding to support future Deaf/Hard of Hearing (DHH) teachers. In partnership with Kathy Seifert—learning disabilities licensure and M.Ed. coordinator—and Professor Kristen McMaster, Project PACT will also offer funding to graduate students in the Academic and Behavioral Strategist (ABS) program. Students interested in interdisciplinary approaches to teaching will receive funding throughout their teacher preparation and master’s degree program and will participate in cross collaborative activities supporting school age Deaf and Hard of Hearing children and those with disabilities.
