To Be Published February 1st 2014 by Routledge – 464 pages
Across disciplines researchers and practitioners rely on single-case research methodology for its wide applicability and self-contained quality. Although it developed out of behavioral psychology and applied behavioral analysis, single-case research is used for research in special education, speech and communication sciences, language and literacy, occupational therapy, and social work. In this new edition of Single Case Research Methodology: Applications in Education, David L. Gast and Jennifer Ledford compile nineteen new chapters and five updated and revised chapters, that detail why and how to apply standard principles to one’s own research or professional project.
David L. Gast is Professor of Special Education in the Department of Communication Science and Special Education at the University of Georgia. The co-author with Dr. James Tawney of Single-Subject Research in Special Education, he has authored or co-authored over his career ten chapters in books and over 100 journal articles, the vast majority being single-subject research design investigations published in special education and psychology journals. He currently serves as a consulting editor for Focus on Autism and Other Developmental Disabilities, Education and Training in Developmental Disabilities, and Exceptionality.
Jennifer Ledford is a Ph.D. candidate in Special Education at Peabody College at Vanderbilt University.
