Special Education Search Tips

Use each database's thesaurus or subject headings list to identify the best wording for your topic. For example, ERIC uses:

  • Disabilities (NOT "disabled' or "exceptional students"). Also, ERIC recommends using more specific terms if possible.
  • Individualized Transition Plans (NOT "transition planning")
  • Mainstreaming (which refers especially to students with disabilities) as well as Inclusion (which refers to a wider variety of marginalized persons)
