The Delores Soderquist Brehm Center for Special Education Scholarship and Research is housed within the Department of Special Education and Communication Sciences and Disorders in the College of Education. Each year, 10 Scholars and 2 Fellows are selected from a pool of applicants. The Brehm Center is based on the two mutually supporting principles of transformational education of 1) research and 2) scholar/teacher/leader Development. The goal is to create special education/speech language pathology professionals and researchers whose focus is on understanding and exploring best practices for supporting people with disabilities. These individuals collaborate with families, people with disabilities, and educational or health care organizations to identify and share best practices, and ultimately transform services by way of their leadership in these organizations.
