Evidence-based practices have been identified for children with autism spectrum disorder (ASD).

Burke, Kathryn M.; Shogren, Karrie A.; Antosh, Anthony A.; Raley, Sheida K.; LaPlante, Terri; Wehmeyer, Michael L. – Education and Training in Autism and Developmental Disabilities, 2019
Implementation science examines the process of how programs are put into action to produce outcomes and represents an emerging approach for analyzing the utilization of evidence-based practices (EBPs) in school settings. When EBPs are implemented effectively, they result in positive student outcomes. The "Self-Determined Learning Model of…

Lovelace, Temple S.; Robertson, Rachel E.; Tamayo, Sareska – Education and Training in Autism and Developmental Disabilities, 2018
Previous research has indicated that having a child with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) presents a unique set of challenges that impacts the entire family unit and individual family members' health, well-being, and experiences across the lifespan (Patterson, 2005; Turnbull, Turnbull, Erwin, & Soodak, 2006). Very few studies have addressed the…

Post-school outcomes for students with intellectual disability continue to lag behind other students with disabilities. One way to improve outcomes for these students is to include them in decisions about their future by teaching students how to participate in their IEP meetings. Self-monitoring provides immediate feedback, motivation, and teaches…

This disparity has decreased the likelihood that African American children will benefit from early intervention…
