U.Va. Educators Named Tops In Their Field

February 5, 2001 -- Two University of Virginia educators have been cited as being among the most influential people nationwide in special education.

A national journal, Remedial and Special Education, included Daniel Hallahan and James Kauffman among the top 54 most influential people in the field. The individuals and their contributions to the field were cited in the November/December issue of the journal.

Hallahan, professor and chair of the Department of Curriculum, Instruction and Special Education in U.Va.’s Curry School of Education, was recognized for two major contributions, which included his influential textbooks and applying "self-monitoring technology to enhance attention to academics in students with learning disabilities."

Kauffman, the Charles S. Robb Professor of Education, was cited for three major contributions, including his behavior interventions in special education. The article also described Kauffman as a "catalyst for emotional and behavior disabilities" and noted that he "served as a conscience for the field on critical issues."

Hallahan and Kauffman are longtime faculty members in the Curry School’s special education department, which U.S. News & World Report magazine ranks fourth among special education programs nationwide.
