- This volume focuses on evidence-based practices (EBPs) , supported, sound research studies documenting their effectiveness with a target population. As such, EBPs have significant potential to improve the outcomes of learners with learning and behavioral disorders.

Chapters discuss the following topics: appraising systematic evidence-based reviews, using single-subject research to identify EBPs, legal issues, implementation fidelity and EBPs, guidelines for implementing EBPs, obstacles to implementing EBPs, teacher preparation and EBPs, EBPs for learners with learning disabilities, EBPs for learners with behavioral disabilities, EBPs for learners with autism spectrum disorders, EBPs in early childhood special education, EBPs in special education in Australia.
