This presentation will describe findings from a systematic review of the literature on interventions conducted with secondary-age (i.e., middle and high school) students with severe disabilities. Peer-reviewed journal articles published over the last 40 years (1975-2014) were systematically reviewed to determine the types of skills taught, prompting strategies used, the context in which skills were taught. Findings will be discussed in terms of trends across time and directions for future research. OBJECTIVES: +T2 IMPORTANCE: The majority of intervention research in severe disabilities focuses on young children. We chose to examine interventions effective with older students to understand trends over time. There is a continued need to document that interventions have positive outcomes beyond just the potential of learning any task (Ryndak et al., 2012). TRANSLATING TOPIC INTO IMPROVED OUTCOMES:Understanding the range of interventions that have been conducted with secondary-age students with severe disabilities will help researchers/service providers/educators to understand effective interventions for this population and directions for future intervention research.
