The Dissertation of the Year Award is presented to a DVIDB member who makes a significant contribution to the field through extensive study and research. Dr. Farrand provides a unique perspective on teaching methodologies that can benefit the learning and development of literary constructs for students with visual impairments. Kathleen's work redefined inclusive environments through work with dramatic inquiry for literacy learning. The methodology used in this work is very limited to our field. Kathleen's examination of inclusion and what it means for a student to be part of an inclusive environment is noteworthy. Her work in this area was sought after for a chapter in an upcoming book in science education in inclusive environments. Editors invited her to write on the topic of inclusion.
