- Intervention Central
This website offers free tools and resources to help school staff and parents to promote positive classroom behaviors and foster effective learning for all children and youth. On this site, you can learn about academic and behavioral intervention strategies, download publications on effective teaching practices, and use tools that streamline classroom assessment and intervention. Many strategies incorporate use of DBR-like tools – for example, the Behavior Reporter: Behavior Report Card Generator allows you to create your own version of DBR for use in assessment, communication, and intervention.
- Center for Children and Families
The Center for Children and Families (CCF) is an interdisciplinary center at Florida International University whose mission is (1) to study the causes, mechanisms, outcomes, and treatments for mental health and educational difficulties of children and adolescents, and (2) to provide education and services for their families and professionals. A CCF goal is to disseminate knowledge in evidence-based practices to educators, children and families, and health professionals. Under the Resources tab, you can find lots of information for different audiences regarding assessment and intervention practices, particularly as related to attention deficit hyperactivity disorder. Comprehensive intervention materials for creating a Daily Report Card, which is a specific type of DBR, are available.
- Evidence Based Intervention Network
With the current emphasis on nationwide accountability and outcome data, schools are gradually becoming more scientific. Consequently, practitioners need to adopt a defensible methodology for selecting evidence-based educational interventions to solve common academic and social behavior problems. To aid in the process, the Evidence Based Intervention Network was developed. The primary initial goal of this project is to provide guidance in the selection and implementation of evidence-based interventions in the classroom setting. Specifically, a collection of evidence-based interventions has been selected from the literature base. Each intervention addresses one of the five most common reasons for academic and social behavior problems. Each intervention includes a brief description and the common problem it addresses. In addition, the specific procedures are outlined, followed by the critical components that must be implemented. A list of needed materials is also provided. References from the literature have been included for each intervention as a reference for more detailed information about the intervention. Finally, for a number of the interventions YouTube modeling videos have been developed.
- What Works Clearinghouse
The U.S. Department of Education Institute of Education Sciences has developed free downloadable practice guides to provide practical recommendations for addressing a number of common challenges that educators face in schools. The practice guides were created by a panel of nationally recognized experts and subsequently were edited by external peer reviewers. The guides contain specific strategies for addressing issues and also information on the strength of the evidence base supporting each strategy.
- The National Center on Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports
The "National Center on Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports" provides technical assistance on school-wide positive behavior supports and gathers and disseminates evidence based behavioral practices and systems for schools, families, districts, and states. In addition, information is available on implementing states, traning resources, links, research and evaluation, and other behavior related topics.
