Summary: 
 
As the need for evidence at all levels increases, Single subject Design (SSD) studies offer a way to provide strong evidence for AT outcomes. This course will discuss SSD methodologies and analyses for single and multiple participant studies, critique current SSD research articles, and discuss the importance of SSD studies as a method for practitioners in the field, researchers and manufacturers to gather important AT evidence. During the course, participants will conduct a SSD study, and work with the instructor on creating a SSD that matches their interests and needs.

Learning Outcomes: 
  1. Participants will be able to identify their AT evidence needs, and determine what method, including SDD, is must appropriate.
  2. Participants will be able to identify possible methodological and analytical solutions to AT outcomes research by utilizing SSDs.
  3. Participants will be able to design a SSD study, including methodology and analysis.
  4. Participants will be able to identify the strengths and weaknesses of others SSD studies through review of current articles and hands-on experiences.
