Taking the Guesswork out of Locating Evidence-Based Mathematics Practices for Diverse Learners
Hughes, Elizabeth M.; Powell, Sarah R.; Lembke, Erica S.; Riley-Tillman, T. Chris
Learning Disabilities Research & Practice, v31 n3 p130-141 Aug 2016
Legislations mandates that educators use evidence-based practices (EBPs) that are supported by scientifically based research. EBPs have demonstrated a likelihood to work for students with disabilities. EBPs should match targeted needs of the student receiving the instruction, which sometimes requires educators to search for the best intervention to meet specific student needs. This article discusses the impetus for practices supported by evidence, where to find interventions and strategies, and what to do when targeted interventions do not exist. Additionally, this article emphasizes the need to evaluate effectiveness of intervention at the student level.
