Project PACT: Preparation about Collaborative Teaching, offers funding to support future Deaf/Hard-of-Hearing (DHH) teachers. In partnership with Kathy Seifert—learning disabilities licensure and MEd coordinator—and Professor Kristen McMaster, Project PACT will also offer funding to graduate students in the Academic and Behavioral Strategist (ABS) program. Students interested in interdisciplinary approaches to teaching will receive funding throughout their teacher preparation and master’s degree program and will participate in cross-collaborative activities supporting school-age deaf and hard-of-hearing children and those with disabilities.
