Research Connections

News Briefs

Topical Briefs

Each year, the Special Project hosts a conference for directors of OSEP-sponsored research projects. Throughout the year, research forums and work groups are held that bring together experts on emerging topics of interest. Focus groups representing the Special Project's audiences are held to inform OSEP and the Special Project of information needs and to enhance the utility of publications produced by the Special Project and other dissemination groups.

The ERIC/OSEP Special Project was funded under a three-party contract among The Council for Exceptional Children (CEC), the Office of Special Education Programs (OSEP), and the Institute of Education Sciences (IES), U.S. Department of Education. Under this contract, OSEP funds the ERIC/OSEP Special Project, and IES funds the ERIC Clearinghouse on Disabilities and Gifted Education.
