This 30-minute webinar reviews the federal mandate related to using and documenting evidence-based practices. This represents the first “R” in the SMARTER acronym. We provide you with some strategies for how to search the literature base. Also, we discuss the importance of other types of evidence such as parents’ beliefs, therapists’ experiences, and the students’ preferences. The SMARTER acronym assists teams with developing federally compliant IEP goals and improving outcomes for students with disabilities. A reflection page is provided for you to spend 30 minutes on summarizing how you will apply your knowledge to your practice.
A Reflection Summary page and Certificate of Attendance are included in the download.
