Lee Kern, a professor of special education at Lehigh University and director of Lehigh’s Center for Promoting Research to Practice, received a three-year, $1.5 million grant from the U.S. Department of Education’s Institute of Education Sciences to adapt Tier 2 behavior interventions for elementary school (K-5) children. Along with researchers from Vanderbilt University, Kern aims to develop a framework to more easily identify and modify interventions that help children with mild to moderate behavior problems.
