Annah Hill and Joseph Domaracki have been awarded a grant of $20,000 through the Pennsylvania Department of Human Services and the ARC of Pennsylvania. The grant will allow them to evaluate the transition planning process for individuals with complex special needs.

Hill and Domaracki, both faculty members in the Department of Communication Disorders, Special Education, and Disability Services, will use a survey tool they created to obtain information from parents, guardians, and school personnel about transition services. The results will be analyzed and used to improve local transition planning services for students in special education, especially those with the most complex special needs.
