Reading and Auditory Processing (RAP) Collaborative Project

University of West Georgia

The purpose of the project is to develop a collaborative, university/school program to assist the general education teacher, the speech-language pathologist, and the special education teacher in instructing and helping students with reading and central auditory processing disorders.

A university collaborative team consisting of two faculty members from the Department of Special Education and Speech-Language Pathology and two faculty members from the Department of Curriculum and Instruction (University Collaborative Team) is conducting the project. A school partnership with Haralson County Schools has been developed that includes central office administrators, general education teachers, special education teachers, and speech language pathologists (Haralson School Team). All educators working in the program are certified, employed by Haralson County, and are enrolled in graduate studies at the university. The Haralson School Team will perform new collaborative skills in the field-based practicum setting following an inclusion classroom model. The general educator, the special educator, and the speech-language pathologist will teach in the same classroom serving both general and special education students together.
