Daniel HallahanDaniel Hallahan Receives Special Education Research Award

September 7, 2000 -- The Council for Exceptional Children (CEC) has awarded its 2000 Special Education Research Award to Daniel Hallahan, whose devotion to unlocking the potential of students with learning disabilities is widely admired in the field of special education.

Hallahan, the chair of the Department of Curriculum, Instruction and Special Education at the University of Virginia's Curry School of Education, is the founder of the Learning Disabilities Research Institute and the co-author of the most widely used introductory-level course book on the subject of exceptional learners. A Detroit native, he received his education at the University of Michigan, earning a B.A. in psychology in 1967 and a Ph.D. in education and psychology in 1971.

According to the CEC's award citation, a trademark of Hallahan's career has been his insistence on translating his research into practical classroom applications, exploring and reworking ideas until they become concrete methods for improving the lives of learning disabled students.

The Council credits Hallahan for "develop[ing] the underpinning and much of the impetus for instructional strategies that are considered 'best practice' today," and notes that "few researchers leave a legacy as extraordinary as that of Dr. Daniel Hallahan."
