Does behavior of children with autism differ by race/ethnicity? Can mentors help juvenile offenders with disabilities reintegrate into society? How well do students in special education perform on state tests? Answers to those and other questions will be shared on March 28 when ICI presents five research posters at the University of Minnesota's College of Education and Human Development (CEHD) Research Day. The posters and display tables will showcase a range of ICI research activities, and staff will be on hand to discuss their work. ICI posters and their authors include:
