The Professional Development Committee has worked to identify and organize resources that district teams as well as individual teachers and other service providers can access to develop viable multi-tier systems of support and effective specialized instruction. In addition to important guidance contained in CEC’s High Leverage Practices in Special Education, and the CASE list of endorsed products, the following six websites are recommended for high quality, reliable and practical information. Additional recommendations will be added to address particular areas of practice or issues after careful vetting.
To support the use of evidence-based interventions (EBI) in schools, the Evidence Based Intervention Network (EBIN) was developed to provide guidance in the selection and implementation of EBI in the classroom setting. The EBIN has an extensive resource base including evidence-based intervention briefs, video modeling of EBIs, information on selecting and using EBI. Each of these resources has been developed in collaboration with faculty and students from a variety of universities.https://ies.ed.gov/ncee/wwc/PracticeGuides
This site contains 24 practical implementation guides addressing a variety of instruction and intervention issues. They are based on reviews of research, the experiences of practitioners, and the expert opinions of a panel of nationally recognized experts. Each includes easy to understand guides indicating the level of evidence in support of a particular component or practice.http://www.florida-rti.org/
The purpose is to provide resources to help districts successfully implement and sustain a multi-tiered system of student supports with fidelity and maximize student outcomes through the application of data-based problem solving and evidence-based practices. While developed specifically for Florida the resources are generally applicable to any school district or setting. Lots of good models for establishing district procedures and guidelines.https://iris.peabody.vanderbilt.edu/
