EDPD 8073 - Research Methodology: Evaluating Evidence-Based Practices in Early Childhood Special Education


(5 cr.) Effective special education leaders must be able to reflect upon and transform research to implement effective evidence-based practices in early childhood special education. The focus is placed on practices that involve emotional, social, and behavioral strategies as well as literacy instruction. Special emphasis is given to the use of technology practices to facilitate assessment, evaluation, instruction, and professional development. Education professionals reflect on research involving culturally responsive teaching, inclusion, and family involvement. Particular attention is given to single-subject research designs that are used to study behavioral change in individuals or small groups as a result of an intervention. Topics include reliable measurement, repeated measurement, description of conditions, baseline and treatment conditions, and single-variable rules.
