Definition: Early childhood interventions or supports that have published research documenting their effectiveness. Practices that are considered evidence-based are ones that have been demonstrated as effective across multiple research studies. In this guide, the term “evidence-based practices” is used interchangeably with “Recommended Practices” and in some cases “targeted practices” when describing statewide initiatives to improve child outcomes.
