Parents of children with disabilities sometimes request specific kinds of services that they have learned about from news stories, the internet, or friends. These sources of information can alert parents and clinicians to beneficial treatments. On the other hand, mass media outlets and word of mouth can also spread biased and unreliable information. To avoid such a problem, clinicians need to employ a decision-making process that enables them to select the best assessment and intervention procedures for a particular situation.
