Your answer
Federal law mentioning MTSS (e.g., IDEA/ESSA) use the term "research-based interventions" indicating that while a program may not have specific empirical evidence of effectiveness, it utilizes some elements that have research indicating they are effective. For example, a program designed to help kids cope with anxiety using CBT would be "research-based", as research indicates that CBT practices have been found to be effective in treating anxiety. However, Delaware's proposed regulations use the term "evidence-based interventions," which is a higher standard. In order for the aforementioned anxiety program to be "evidence-based," there would need to be high-quality empirical studies of that specific anxiety management program showing its effectiveness. If passed, any intervention used to address academic or social/emotional/behavioral concerns would need to have specific empirical research showing its effectiveness in order to be utilized. Do you agree with this approach?
