JAASEP - Research Based Journal in Special Education

All members of The National Association of Special Education Teachers, through an agreement with the American Academy of Special Education Professionals, will now have free access to an online peer reviewed research journal in special education, the Journal of the American Academy of Special Education Professionals (JAASEP).

The Journal of the American Academy of Special Education Professionals (JAASEP) is an online peer-reviewed journal committed to advancing the professional development of special education professionals through research, policy, and practice.  JAASEP is a multi-faceted electronic journal that seeks new contributions based on original work of practitioners and researchers with specific focus on or implications for the field of special education.

The content of JAASEP is likely to be of interest to college or university faculty, school administrators, educational evaluators, psychologists, special education teachers, psychiatrists, medical doctors, directors of special education services, directors of early intervention agencies, infant-toddler service coordinators, transition service coordinators, speech and language pathologists, occupational and physical therapists, educational lawyers, and all other practitioners and professionals in the field of special education. 

To read all of the various editions and articles in JAASEP, NASET Member's must be logged in and use the link on this page (see issue list below). Starting in the Fall of 2009 and going forward all articles along with the entire edition of JAASEP will be availble to view or download on NASET. This will preclude the need to use special links to AASEP

We hope that you take the time to read the professional literature provided. As always, if you have any questions or comments, please contact us at: news@naset.org
