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…

With the increase of individuals with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) leaving the public school systems with centralized training environments, there needs to be innovation in supporting staff who will find themselves working in various community environments with adolescent or adult learners. Staff training and ongoing supervision is important for…

Ivy, Sarah E.; Hatton, Deborah D.; Wehby, Joseph H. – Research and Practice for Persons with Severe Disabilities, 2018
Children's skill level in using a spoon facilitates increased independence during mealtimes and greater control over the pace and quantity of food intake, which has important implications for health and self-determination. Children with severe multiple disabilities, including cognitive and visual impairment (VI), require intensive instruction to…

Spooner, Fred; McKissick, Bethany R.; Knight, Victoria F. – Research and Practice for Persons with Severe Disabilities, 2017
The use of evidence-based practices (EBPs) was mandated with the passage of the No Child Left Behind Act of 2001 (NCLB), and continues with the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA). Accordingly, all children, including those with severe disabilities, must be taught both daily living and academic skills using EBPs. In this article, we synthesize,…

Trader, Barbara; Stonemeier, Jennifer; Berg, Tricia; Knowles, Christen; Massar, Michelle; Monzalve, Manuel; Pinkelman, Sarah; Nese, Rhonda; Ruppert, Traci; Horner, Robert – Research and Practice for Persons with Severe Disabilities, 2017
The use of restraint and seclusion in schools has been identified repeatedly as an approach that is overused, misused, and potentially dangerous. In this article, we emphasize the importance of an approach to supporting students with significant problem behavior that focuses on prevention, evidence-based intervention procedures, heightened levels…

Effective vocational instruction is an essential aspect of preparing students with intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDD) for the world of work. We systematically reviewed research on instructional methods used to teach employment skills to secondary students with IDD. We identified 56 studies involving 766 participants with IDD. Four…

Kurth, Jennifer A.; Enyart, Matt – Research and Practice for Persons with Severe Disabilities, 2016
Although the number of schools implementing schoolwide positive behavior supports (SWPBS) has increased dramatically, the inclusion of students with severe disabilities in these efforts remains negligible. This article describes the evolution of positive behavior intervention and supports into the SWPBS approach used in many schools today,…

Andzik, Natalie R.; Cannella-Malone, Helen I.; Sigafoos, Jeff – Research and Practice for Persons with Severe Disabilities, 2016
Although functional communication training (FCT) is an effective intervention for increasing appropriate forms of communicative behaviors and decreasing inappropriate forms of communication (i.e., challenging behavior) in students with disabilities, its effectiveness might depend to some extent on the expertise of the interventionist. The purpose…
