Practice Alerts

The Alerts series is a joint initiative sponsored by two divisions of the Council for Exceptional Children—the Division for Learning Disabilities (DLD) and the Division for Research (DR).

Each Current Practice Alert provides timely and informed judgments regarding professional practices in the field with a special focus on learning disabilities. Based on the adequacy of the current knowledge base and practice experience, each Alert makes a recommendation of “Go For It” (practices for which there is solid research evidence of effectiveness), or “Use Caution” (practices for which the research evidence is preliminary, incomplete, mixed, or negative).

DR invites suggestions regarding ways in which we can improve the Alerts series as well as suggestions regarding target practices for future issues. Please contact us with your comments and suggestions.
