Pearson’s EBP Briefs are case studies designed to assist with using evidence-based practice (EBP) in everyday clinical decision-making. This case will examine the clinical question, “Does a multiple-linguistic word-study spelling intervention approach improve written language success for school-age children with and without language-literacy deficits (LLD)?” 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 PPVT-4 (Dunn & Dunn, 2007).
