Overview of the EBI 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. Specifically, a framework is needed for the selection of functionally relevant, evidence-based interventions. The most defensible methodology for intervention selection is to adopt a functional approach to understanding academic and social behavior problems. Using this approach, all incorporated interventions are selected based on evidence that they provide a logical solution to the problem at hand.

The EBI Network has been developed to provide guidance in the selection and implementation of evidence-based interventions in the classroom setting. There are four general categories of resources on the EBI Network:

  1. Evidence Based Intervention Resources
  2. Response to Intervention Resources
  3. English Language Learners Resources
  4. Foundations of Problem Solving Resources
This website is by no means intended to be an exhaustive list of educational interventions. Rather, this website is a sampling of evidence-based interventions and associated resources that can be used in the classroom. Visitors of this website are strongly recommended to seek additional information on websites such as Intervention Central or books such as Effective School Interventions (second edition) written by Dr. Natalie Rathvon. Other suggested resources can be found in the other resources section of this website. Finally, if you have any questions or comments please feel free to e-mail Dr. Riley-Tillman at rileytillmant@missouri.edu.
