Rebecca Lieberman-Betz, a GDP Graduate, is Awarded a $1.1 million Grant

Principal Investigator Rebecca Lieberman-Betz, an Associate Professor with the UGA Department of Communication Sciences and Special Education and a graduate of OIBR’s Grantsmanship Development Program, was recently awarded a new 5 year, $1.1 million grant from the U.S. Department of Education’s Office of Special Programs.

When children are born with complex needs, service providers from diverse professional backgrounds must work together to form personalized support plans that not only benefit each individual child, but also their families. Through the UGA College of Education’s Preparation of Interdisciplinary Providers (PIPs) Project students pursuing a master’s degree or education specialist degree in either special education or in communication sciences and disorders, the project offers collaborative learning and training across a range of disciplines, including speech language pathology, special education as well as physical and occupational therapy.
