This chapter describes Deno and Mirkin’s (1977) well-known Data-Based Program Modification manual. The manual’s main purpose was to detail an innovative and ambitious model of service delivery (Special Education Resource Teacher, or SERT) by which special educators’ roles would change to ensure an appropriate education for students with disabilities. Although formulated more than three decades ago, this SERT model addresses important issues and problems that resonate today. This review serves in part as an example of the sometimes cyclical nature of educational policy discussions. It also illustrates the informed, innovative, and practical thinking that has often been demonstrated by the special education community.
