Evidence-Based Practices

Descriptions of Practices and Predictors

Click on the links to the left for information regarding NSTTAC's review of intervention and correlational research and results of that review. The links include Practice Descriptions, organized by skills taught and intervention strategies, Research to Practice Lesson Plan Starters, and predictors of improved post-school outcomes. Additionally, there are evidence-based secondary transition resources from the What Works in Transition Synthesis Project and other Technical Assistance and Dissemination Centers.
