Grant to fund Loyola training supporting people with disabilities

Leah Katherine Saal, Ph.D., associate professor of literacy education, and Lisa Schoenbrodt, Ed.D., professor of speech-language and hearing sciences, received a $197,715 grant to educate and train supervisors at Maryland correctional facilities in best practices for interacting with incarcerated people who have developmental disabilities. The pilot training program, “LEADing to Learn,” will increase the supervisors’ awareness of how to engage with people with developmental disabilities and establish a model for future trainings.
