One of the missions of NCSSD is Knowledge Advancement. We have conducted several studies over the course of our five years and these are available on our Research Clearinghouse website (http://nclid.unco.edu/rch). If you are interested in publishing preliminary research findings or would like to partner with the National Center on Low-Incidence Disabilities, please contact our Program Coordinator, Dr. Ann Sebald (ann.sebald@unco.edu).

leafNeeds Assessment

NCSSD has developed a Needs Assessment survey to pinpoint the research and training needs within the field of low-incidence disabilities. Results are available for all participants, and in each low-incidence specialty area.

leafLiteracy Meta-analysis

In 2003 NCSSD set out to review 40 years of literacy research within the three low-incidence areas. Visit this link to view our Technical Reports.

leafCaseload Study

NCSSD, in collaboration with the Colorado Department of Education has been reviewing state survey data to explore issues of caseload for teachers of students with low-incidence disabilities. Visit the link to learn more about this on-going study.

leafGraduate Enrollment Survey

NCSSD conducts an annual survey for Division 17 of the Association for Education and Rehabilitation of the Blind and Visually Impaired as part of its responsibilities for Goal 3 of the National Agenda for the Education of Children and Youths with Visual Impairment, Including Those with Multiple Disabilities. The survey is designed to gather information about production of new personnel in the field of blindness and visual impairment. To view results, conduct a search on the Research Clearinghouse website (http://nclid.unco.edu/rch) using the search terms "ENROLLMENT SURVEY".

leafExcellence in Education

In 2002 through 2004, the National Center on Severe and Sensory Disabilities (NCSSD) recognized exceptional educators within the low-incidence fields who went above and beyond in their quest for educating students who were blind or visually impaired, deaf or hard of hearing, and those with significant support needs. To learn about our Excellence in Education Award Winners, visit NCLID Home or Research Clearinghouse websites and conduct a search using the terms "EXCELLENCE IN EDUCATION".

leafState Assessment Project

In 2003, the National Center on Low-Incidence Disabilities began to collect statewide assessment data on children with low-incidence disabilities. Click on the link provided to review the latest results from the 2004-2005 academic year.

leafAPH Math Meta Analysis

In 2005, the American Printing House for the Blind commissioned the National Center on Low-Incidence Disabilities to analyze 50 years of research in mathematics education. Ten studies met the criteria for evidence-based practice. The final report is now available in either Word or PDF formats.

leafHealthy Families

The following are the results of a study conducted by the National Center on Low-Incidence Disabilities. For the full article, see: Luckner, J. & Velaski, A. (2004). Healthy families with children who are deaf. American Annals of the Deaf, 149(4), 324-335.

To review dissertations relating to students with low-incidence disabilities, visit the Research Clearinghouse at http://nclid.unco.edu/rch/ and type in the search terms "DOCTORAL DISSERTATIONS".

leafSuccessful Students who are Deaf

We undertook this study to identify successful students who are deaf who receive the majority of their educational services in general education settings. We wanted to examine the factors that contributed to their success.

hideResources

A large part of NCLID's mission is to provide information to its constituency: parents, teachers, administrators, and students. Consequently, we have a myriad of resources available.

leafPsychoeducational Assessments

Testing and assessment of students with low-incidence disabilities is filled with challenges in communication, accessibility and interpretation. There are few professionals trained to give psychoeducational assessments for students of this population, and far less appropriate assessments normed on students with low-incidence disabilities available to professionals. NCLID has developed a variety of information and resources to help those who test students who are blind or visually impaired, deaf or hard of hearing, and those with signficant support needs. To view this information, conduct a search on the NCLID Home website (http://nclid.unco.edu/joomla) using the search terms "PSYCHOEDUCATIONAL ASSESSMENT".

leafConversations of Interest

NCLID has conducted several interviews asking professionals and parents in the field to discuss issues relative to low-incidence disabilities. Visit the link to review converstations with profeesionals such as Dr. Sandy Bowen relating to early intervention and Dr. Diane Ryndak relating to transition issues for students with severe disabilities.

leafEarly intervention videos
leafPop-Up IEPs

The pop-Up IEPs contain tools developed by parent organizations with support from the National Center on Low-Incidence Disabilities. Each Pop-Up IEP contains phrases that parents have experienced during their child’s Individualized Education Program (IEP) meetings. Each phrase has several courteous, yet assertive responses parents can make when faced with these challenges. Additionally, sections of the special education law, the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA), are included to supplement responses. Finally resources and information are given where appropriate.

leafJobs

Due to the overwhelming response to our Job Bank, NCLID has created a separate website designed specifically for this purpose. Be sure to visit this site often for the most up to date job postings on positions relating to the education of students who are deaf or hard of hearing, blind or visually impaired, and those with significant support needs. If you would like to post a job announcement to the NCLID Job Bank, please send an electronic copy of the job description and contact information to Dr. Ann Sebald (ann.sebald@unco.edu).

leafToolbox

NCLID has created a long list of resources available for teachers, parents, administrators and students that relate to each low-incidence category. These resources are contained in "Toolboxes" designed to help facilitate student learning and educational access. To review all the various tools available, conduct a search on the NCLID Home website (http://nclid.unco.edu/joomla) and use the following search terms: "BVI TOOLBOX", "DHH TOOLBOX", or "SSN TOOLBOX".

leafOutcome Data

A review of statistical information was obtained from several websites such as the Social Security Administration and U.S. Department of Labor. The rationale for this review was to obtain the most up to date statistical information regarding students with low-incidence disabilities for the areas of education, employment and community access.

hideAbout

The National Center on Low-Incidence Disabilities grew out of a desire to help children with low-incidence disabilities get a fair chance at an education. Across the nation, approximately one million children and youth have low-incidence disabilities that affect their hearing, vision, movement, and intellectual capabilities — alone or in combination with each other.
