DISM 6084 & DISM 6085 Seminar in Evidence-Based Methods I & II (Fall and Spring)



Credits: 8 credits across two semesters

Course Description:

This course assists students to improve their skill with, and understanding of, evidence-based methods relevant to serving children with neurodevelopment disabilities and their families. The centerpiece is participation in weekly meetings (leader plus two to four trainees) to work on a year-long interdisciplinary group project. At the end of the program, each group prepares a poster presentation of its work and presents it locally and at the New York State Health Department. The course also includes a small number of instructional sessions that focus on specific topics and skills related to evidence-based practice.
