The Award database is continually updated throughout the year. As a result, data for the given year is not complete until April of the following year. Annual Reports data is a snapshot of agency reported information for that year and hence might look different from the live data in the Awards Information charts.

  1. Go Talk Phonics: Phonics for Individuals with Disabilities

    SBC: Attainment Co., Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Purpose: Prior research demonstrates that younger students who are low- or non-verbal often have difficulty independently practicing skills that provide a foundation for early literacy. The proposed product will provide support to students who are low- or non-verbal to independently practice phonics skills associated with early literacy success. Project Activities: The design team will create an ...
