How can you tell which educational practices or programs are likely to help your child and which ones aren’t? In the present environment where the public is bombarded with information on programs offering to address the problems of students with learning difficulties, there is a need for authoritative comment, based on empirical evidence, to either support or question the effectiveness of such programs.

Macquarie University Special Education Centre (MUSEC) Briefings

MUSEC Briefings are provided as a community service to inform members of the public about the evidence base for a variety of educational practices.
