N1: Practice is Research
The N1 Practice is Research Training Package is designed to teach clinicians how to evaluate client outcomes using Single Case Experimental Designs (also known as N1 designs). This training package provides a first step for allied health professionals and educators who work with individuals with developmental disability and their families to work with us to promote evidence-based practice.
In research, ‘n’ refers to the number of participants in a particular study. We believe that the best way to move the field forward is to consider the needs and outcomes for each individual person and family, hence the name N1.
N1 is a program of applied clinical research aimed at supporting the delivery of evidence-based treatments and supports to children, adolescents, and adults with developmental disabilities and their families.
Evaluated by a group of 80 clinicians, the N1 team is preparing the results for journal publications.
N1 has been developed with the support of speech pathologists, Physiotherapists, and Occupational Therapists on Developmental Disability (SPOTonDD) and the La Trobe University eResearch Office.

Thank you for your interest in the N1 Training Package. Following the very positive outcomes of our pilot research, the Project Team has recently submitted an application for research funding to support a large workplace trial commencing in 2015. Please subscribe to the OTARC newsletter if you would like to receive updates about the package and the research trial.
