Coyne, Michael D.; McCoach, D. Betsy; Ware, Sharon; Austin, Christy R.; Loftus-Rattan, Susan M.; Baker, Doris L. – Exceptional Children, 2019
We investigated whether individual differences in overall receptive vocabulary knowledge measured at the beginning of the year moderated the effects of a kindergarten vocabulary intervention that supplemented classroom vocabulary instruction. We also examined whether moderation would offset the benefits of providing Tier-2 vocabulary intervention…

Clarke, Ben; Doabler, Christian T.; Smolkowski, Keith; Turtura, Jessica; Kosty, Derek; Kurtz-Nelson, Evangeline; Fien, Hank; Baker, Scott K. – Exceptional Children, 2019
This study examined the role of initial skill in moderating intervention effects of a 50-lesson mathematics intervention program, ROOTS, for at-risk kindergarten students focused on developing whole-number concepts and skills. The study utilized a randomized block design with at-risk students (n = 592) within classrooms (n = 60) randomly assigned…

Clemens, Nathan H.; Oslund, Eric; Kwok, Oi-man; Fogarty, Melissa; Simmons, Deborah; Davis, John L. – Exceptional Children, 2019
This study utilized secondary analyses of a randomized controlled trial and investigated the extent to which prestest word identification efficiency, reading fluency, and vocabulary knowledge moderated the effects of an intervention on reading comprehension outcomes for struggling readers in sixth through eighth grades. Given that the experimental…

Vaughn, Sharon; Roberts, Greg; Capin, Philip; Miciak, Jeremy; Cho, Eunsoo; Fletcher, Jack M. – Exceptional Children, 2019
This study examined how differences in listening comprehension and word reading at the beginning of the school year influence changes in reading comprehension for English learners (ELs) with significant reading difficulties compared to non-ELs with significant reading difficulties. The study investigated heterogeneity in response to instruction…

Fuchs, Lynn S.; Fuchs, Douglas; Gilbert, Jennifer K. – Exceptional Children, 2019
The purpose of this analysis was to assess whether effects of first-grade mathematics intervention apply across the range of at-risk learners' initial skill levels. Students were randomly assigned to control (n = 213) and two variants of intervention (n = 385) designed to improve arithmetic. Of each 30-minute intervention session (48 over 16…

Wanzek, Jeanne; Roberts, Greg; Vaughn, Sharon; Swanson, Elizabeth; Sargent, Katherine – Exceptional Children, 2019
Students with disabilities are often included in general education social studies classes, but these classes can differ in the achievement level of the overall class, including wide variation in content-related background knowledge, reading achievement, or both. The purpose of this study was to examine how background knowledge and reading…

Fuchs, Douglas; Kearns, Devin M.; Fuchs, Lynn S.; Elleman, Amy M.; Gilbert, Jennifer K.; Patton, Samuel; Peng, Peng; Compton, Donald L. – Exceptional Children, 2019
Because of the importance of teaching reading comprehension to struggling young readers and the infrequency with which it has been implemented and evaluated, we designed a comprehensive first-grade reading comprehension program. We conducted a component analysis of the program's decoding/fluency and reading comprehension dimensions (DF and COMP),…

Preacher, Kristopher J.; Sterba, Sonya K. – Exceptional Children, 2019
A common theme uniting articles in this special issue is a focus on aptitude-by-treatment interactions (ATIs). This timely and welcome focus allows the field to synthesize current substantive findings on ATIs in educational intervention research in both reading and math domains. In this methodological commentary, we begin by reviewing traditional…

Ballard, Sarah L.; Dymond, Stacy K. – Exceptional Children, 2019
A recommended practice in the field of severe disabilities is involving students in their specialized health care procedures; however, little is known about how this practice is occurring in schools. The purpose of this qualitative multiple-case study was to understand how secondary-age students with severe disabilities are involved in their…

Morgan, Paul L.; Wang, Yangyang; Woods, Adrienne D.; Mandel, Zoe; Farkas, George; Hillemeier, Marianne M. – Exceptional Children, 2019
We examined whether U.S. schools systemically discriminate when suspending or otherwise disciplining students with disabilities (SWD). Eighteen studies met inclusion criteria. We coded 147 available risk estimates from these 18 studies. Of four studies including individual-level controls for infraction reasons, over half of the available estimates…

Johnson, Austin H.; Cook, Bryan G. – Exceptional Children, 2019
To draw informed conclusions from research studies, research consumers need full and accurate descriptions of study methods and procedures. Preregistration has been proposed as a means to clarify reporting of research methods and procedures, with the goal of reducing bias in research. However, preregistration has been applied primarily to research…

Grasley-Boy, Nicolette M.; Gage, Nicholas A.; Lombardo, Michael – Exceptional Children, 2019
School leaders react to inappropriate behaviors by excluding students, despite research suggesting an association with poor student outcomes. Students with disabilities are frequently subjected to these practices. One framework that has been proposed to reduce the reliance on reactive discipline procedures is schoolwide positive behavior…

O'Brien, Kristen Merrill; Brunsting, Nelson C.; Bettini, Elizabeth; Cumming, Michelle M.; Ragunathan, Maalavika; Sutton, Rachel – Exceptional Children, 2019
Special education teachers (SETs) who teach students with emotional or behavioral disorders (EBD) in self-contained settings are often less qualified, more stressed and burned out, and more likely to leave teaching than other SETs, resulting in a less effective workforce teaching students with significant behavioral and academic needs. Working…

Well-designed mathematics instruction focused on concepts and problem-solving skills associated with measurement and data analysis can build a foundational understanding for more advanced mathematics. This study investigated the efficacy of the Precision Mathematics Level 1 (PM-L1) intervention, a Tier 2 print- and technology-based mathematics…

Austin, Christy R.; Wanzek, Jeanne; Scammacca, Nancy K.; Vaughn, Sharon; Gesel, Samantha A.; Donegan, Rachel E.; Engelmann, Morgan L. – Exceptional Children, 2019
Empirical studies investigating supplemental reading interventions for students with or at risk for reading disabilities in the early elementary grades have demonstrated a range of effect sizes. Identifying the findings from high-quality research can provide greater certainty of findings related to the effectiveness of supplemental reading…
