The SJSU Lurie College of Education provides a range of grants to students to support their academic endeavors to become transformative educators, counselors, therapists, and leaders. We spoke with SJSU Lurie College of Education Communicative Disorders and Sciences student James Chow, who received support to conduct research on alternative methods to help people with aphasia communicate with their medical providers. Listen to James’ insights below!
“Something challenging or surprising that I’ve seen and experienced this year working with this project is just how little resources we have for adults in geriatrics with these types of communicative disorders such as like aphasia or dementia. It’s also been really neat to be able to be in the front lines in the research clinic downstairs, where these adults are experiencing the same kind of issues like, “They just took away my driver’s license, how do I combat that?” or, “I don’t know what my doctor is telling me like I want to participate in that”. Being able to see all these real challenges that they’re having makes me want to pursue this further.”
The SJSU Lurie College of Education faculty members have been crowdsourcing and sharing resources with one another as we’ve transitioned into a remote, virtual teaching and learning environment. We would like to share these resources with Lurie College of Education students, alumni, and partners who may find them useful in their work. The list below is in no particular order and are not necessarily endorsed by the Lurie College of Education.

The SJSU Lurie College of Education provides a range of grants to students to support their academic endeavors to become transformative educators, counselors, therapists, and leaders. We spoke with Department of Child and Adolescent Development students Luz Nicacio and Liliana Adler, who received support to attend the Latinx Leads conference, to learn more about their experiences and how they have shaped them going forward. Listen to Luz and Lily’s insights below!
“I think it’s important that everyone knows that there’s people who grow up a lot differently than you do and have different values than you do, so it’s important to educate yourself about those kinds of values and be an open ear and an ally to people who may not look like you.”
The SJSU Lurie College of Education provides a range of grants to students to support their academic endeavors to become transformative educators, counselors, therapists, and leaders. We spoke with Department of Special Education student Monica Gonzalez, who has received a grant to pursue a special research project, to learn more about her experiences and how they have shaped her going forward. Listen to Monica’s insights below!
“My motivation for pursuing this research project is the lack of research available on differentiated instruction for English language learners with mild-to-moderate disabilities. When I was conducting my literature review, I noticed that there was specific research on English language learners, specific research on children with autism, specific research on children who have a specific learning disability, but not a lot of research on English language learners who have autism or English language learners who have a specific learning disability.”
