Educational Practice & Programs

How can you tell which educational practices or programs are likely to help your child and which ones aren’t? In the present environment where the public is bombarded with information on programs offering to address the problems of students with learning difficulties, there is a need for authoritative comment, based on empirical evidence, to either support or question the effectiveness of such programs.

Nomanis Notes


What are Nomanis Notes?


Nomanis Notes comprise a series of single page briefings on relevant educational topics likely to be of interest to parents, teachers and other professionals, with particular reference to learning difficulties. Their aim is to succinctly summarise the state of knowledge on the topic, offer a considered opinion, and to provide starter references for those wishing to find out more.


Note that some of the Nomanis Notes consist of revised and updated versions of the MUSEC Briefings previously provided by Macquarie University Special Education Centre which has been disbanded, but you are able to access them further below.

Macquarie University Special Education Centre (MUSEC) Briefings

MUSEC Briefings, by the Macquarie University Special Education Centre, 2005-2018, were provided as a community service to inform members of the public about the evidence base for a variety of educational practices.

They are now archived with permission on the SPELFABET website linked below:
