Hauser, Marc D. – TEACHING Exceptional Children, 2017
Individualized education program (IEP) goals and objectives often provide illogical or insufficient methodological detail (e.g., Capizzi, 2008).

It is understandable that misuse of the terms "specially designed instruction" (SDI), "high-leverage practices" (HLPs), "explicit instruction" (EI), and "intensive instruction"(II) has bred confusion among professionals, and this confusion may lead to miscommunication and misunderstandings in the field.…

Perle, Jonathan G.; Curtis, David F. – TEACHING Exceptional Children, 2017

Hirsch, Shanna E.; Bruhn, Allison L.; Lloyd, John Wills; Katsiyannis, Antonis – TEACHING Exceptional Children, 2017
There is substantial empirical evidence that the Functional Behavioral Assessment (FBA) process is an effective means to reduce student problem behavior and increase desirable behaviors (e.g., What Works Clearinghouse, 2016). The use of an FBA as the basis for a behavior intervention plan (BIP) has been a requirement for certain disciplinary…

Artman-Meeker, Kathleen; Grant, Thomas O.; Yang, Xueyan – TEACHING Exceptional Children, 2016
In our increasingly diverse schools, teachers have a responsibility and an opportunity to help students see themselves and others through the lens of literature.
