Lauren Lieberman was awarded another $300,000 grant from the Lavelle Fund for the Blind
Lauren Lieberman, Distinguished Service Professor from KSSPE was recently awarded a $300,000 three-year grant. The focus of this grant is to help promote inclusion in physical education and after school sports for children with visual impairments.
The grant includes funds for a full-time graduate student each year. We will also be making three videos each year of different sports to train teachers, parents and coaches on how to include children with visual impairments. Lastly, the funds cover "Train the Trainer" workshops all over NY state to ensure there are experts around the state to consult with teachers, parents, and coaches to include children with VI in physical education and sports.
