Evidence-Based Practices Guidance to Support All Learners

Evidence-Based and Promising Practices to Support Continuity of Learning for Students With Disabilities Practices and Resources to Support Parents and Families – Source: IDEA Topics

Need for Evidence-Based and Promising Practices Evidence-based practices (EBPs) in education refer to teaching and learning strategies that have been shown by scientific research to be effective in improving academic and/or behavioral performance. Using an EBP does not guarantee that it will be successful with every child but does indicate that the practice has a greater chance of working than those without evidence. Promising practices are those that have shown potential to have positive impact on outcomes for students with disabilities but have not been subject to rigorous testing to demonstrate that impact.

The first section presents three tables of practices for parents and families of school-aged children (ages 5-18). Specific practices are outlined for general online and distance learning, literacy, and math skills. Definitions of approaches, instructional considerations, and additional resources for educators are provided. The second section presents one table of practices for parents and families of young children (toddlers and preschoolers- ages 2-5). Categories of practices are provided for each area of growth and skill development for young children.
