Treatment Integrity in Learning Disabilities Intervention Research: Do We Really Know How Treatments Are Implemented?
Gresham, Frank M.; MacMillan, Donald L.; Beebe-Frankenberger, Margaret E.; Bocian, Kathleen M.
Learning Disabilities: Research & Practice, v15 n4 p198-205 Fall 2000
A survey of intervention articles published in major learning disabilities journals over the past 5 years found only 18.5 percent of these studies measured the integrity with which treatments were implemented, thus casting doubt on treatment effectiveness. This article discusses treatment integrity logic, threats to experimental validity without treatment integrity assessment, and technical issues in treatment integrity. (Contains references.)
