Radical changes are taking place in the early childhood community. The concept of evidence-based practice is helping early educators, special educators, early interventionists, child care professionals, mental health professionals, social workers, health-care professionals, and others to transform the services provided to children and families.
Evidence-Based Practice in the Early Childhood Field defines the evidence-based practice movement and explains how it is empowering professionals to deliver the most effective interventions available. The authors examine how evidence-based practice is changing the way research is conducted and how various sources of evidence can be applied to solve real-world problems and used to inform critical policy decisions.
