Wu, Ya-ping; Chen, Ming-chung; Lo, Ya-yu; Chiang, Chun-han – Research and Practice for Persons with Severe Disabilities, 2020
This study examined the effects of an intervention that integrated peer-mediated instruction (PMI) with augmentative and alternative communication (AAC) using speech-generating devices (SGDs). Nine trained peer tutors without disabilities taught science concepts and modeled use of SGDs following a script to three elementary school students with…

Horner, Rob H.; Halle, James W. – Research and Practice for Persons with Severe Disabilities, 2020
We summarize three changes in education that have direct relevance for the education of students with severe disabilities: (a) adoption of multi-tiered system of supports as a framework for intervention, (b) delivering educational reform at the "whole school" level, and (c) advances in information technology that are altering the type…

Herbert, Morgan E.; Brock, Matthew E.; Barczak, Mary A.; Anderson, Eric J. – Research and Practice for Persons with Severe Disabilities, 2020
Peer networks are a promising intervention for increasing social interactions between students with severe disabilities and their peers. However, this approach has not been well studied with high school students who have complex communication needs and use augmentative and alternative communication (AAC). In this study, we used a multiple probe…

Root, Jenny R.; Cox, Sarah K.; Gonzalez, Stephanie – Research and Practice for Persons with Severe Disabilities, 2019
Data analysis inherently requires problem solving, yet it is the most understudied mathematical skill for individuals with extensive support needs. The current study taught elementary students with extensive support needs (i.e., autism and intellectual disability) to solve math word problems requiring analysis of scaled pictographs through…
