The Oregon Institute on Disability & Development, the Oregon Health and Science University, Child Development and Rehabilitation Center will receive a sole source program expansion supplemental grant for "Making It Real: Participatory Action Research (PAR) for UCEDDs," a training initiative on the critical and emerging needs of individuals with developmental disabilities and their families. Through the project, a tool kit is being created that will include tested educational modules on participatory action research. Through the creation of the toolkit, every UCEDD will be able to access resources that will enhance and increase PAR and support initiatives that are most meaningful to people with developmental disabilities and their families. It will also be available to individuals with developmental disabilities, family members, advocacy groups, and other interested organizations. By continuing funding of this project, additional resources will be developed, including materials in Spanish. In addition, the expansion supplement will allow for more time and resources to enhance training and dissemination efforts.
The Administration for Children and Families intends to supplement the current grant by $65,000. The grantee will continue to provide a 25 percent match.
