The Indiana Department of Education says schools and students with special needs will benefit from about $5.6 million in federal funds awarded to three programs at Indiana University and one at Indiana State University.

The grant recipients including the IU's Indiana Institute on Disability and Community will provide professional development and other support for special education to schools across the state. The institute's grants include one to help schools prepare special needs students for adulthood.

The Christian Sarkine Autism Treatment Center at IU's Riley Hospital for Children will help schools with autism programs. Indiana State's Blumberg center for Interdisciplinary Studies in Special Education received two grants.
