Here are some search tips to remember when searching the databases.
1. Be sure to mark the "peer reviewed" or "scholarly" limit when searching for peer reviewed articles.
2. Use quotation marks around phrases.
3. Use the word "and" between different concepts.
4. Use the word "or" between similar concepts.
5. The truncation symbol in the databases is *. Using this will allow you to search for various forms of the word in one step. For example, strateg* will search for strategy, strategies, strategize, and strategic.
Here are some examples searches:
("experimental methods" or "nontraditional education" or "experimental teaching") and autism
(treatment* or strateg* or approach* or method*) and "Prader Willi Syndrome"
(treatment* or strateg* or approach* or method*) and "fragile x syndrome"
