Agreeing to Agree: A Response to Dempsey's Commentary on the Reported Prevalence by Australian Special Educators of Evidence-Based Instructional Practices
Carter, Mark; Stephenson, Jennifer; Strnadova, Iva
Australasian Journal of Special Education, v35 n2 p226-229 Dec 2011
Dempsey has provided a commentary on our study (Carter, Stephenson, & Strnadova, 2011) examining the reported rates of use of instructional practices by Australian special educators. Examining this commentary, it is evident that on many issues we are on the same page and agree on many of the fundamental conclusions to be drawn from the study. Nevertheless, Dempsey did express concern regarding several aspects of the reporting of the study, which were suggested to have the "potential to mislead" readers. In essence, these criticisms revolve around four substantive points and these will each be addressed.
