Alignment of single-case design (SCD) research with individuals who are deaf or hard of hearing with the What Works Clearinghouse Standards for SCD Research

By Erica Wendel, Stephanie Cawthon, J Ge, and N Beretvas.

Single-Case Design (SCD) research is often considered a good fit for measuring intervention outcomes among low-incidence populations, including individuals who are deaf or hard of hearing (DHH). The authors use criteria from the What Works Clearinghouse (WWC) to assess the quality of single-case design (SCD) studies across deaf and hard of hearing research. Findings showed that out of twelve studies, less than half met the WWC standards due to weaknesses in research methodology, experimental validity, and stringency of overall design. These findings suggest a need for more rigorous study designs that are sensitive to the unique characteristics of the DHH population. The article also discusses the role of WWC and suggestions for increasing the quality and rigor of future SCD research.
