Evidence-Based Practices

Evidence-based practice is a widely-accepted way of ensuring that recipients of early intervention, education, health care, and human services receive the best possible care. Practices are considered "evidence-based" when multiple research studies using the same or similar practices are related to the same or similar results or findings. Replication of the same effects across studies strengthens our ability to relate a specific practice to a specific outcome. As part of RTC activities, practice-based Research Syntheses are conducted to determine the effectiveness of early childhood practices.

Practice-based research syntheses are conducted using an approach to evidence-based practices that considers both the characteristics and consequences of practices, how they are related, and how this relationship informs what parents and practitioners can do to implement practices that are informed by research. Detailed descriptions of our conceptual and operational framework can be found in our first two Centerscope articles.
