Pearson’s EBP Briefs are case-based courses designed to assist with everyday decision-making in clinical practice. This case will examine the clinical question, “Is there evidence for using strategic approaches to writing intervention among elementary school children with special needs?” The related literature search and analysis, along with the resultant clinical decision and application to clinical practice, will also be discussed. A relevant assessment tool for this case is the CELF-5 (Semel, Wiig & Secord, 2013).
