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
DLD and DR invite 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.
