Editorial Note: Improving Intervention Effectiveness and Efficiency
Thomas J. Power
Research in school psychology historically has been applied in nature and related to practice. This is particularly the case with research published in School Psychology Review (SPR), which has a mission to publish research that informs practice. Nonetheless, research in school psychology varies markedly with regard to the extent to which it is aligned with practice. The intent of the Research Into Practice section of SPR is to present research that closely maps to practice and directly addresses the challenges that practitioners encounter in their work. This issue of SPR includes two articles in the Research Into Practice section that have the potential to contribute substantially to practice with regard to instructional and behavioral consultation in schools. A common theme across the two studies is the design of interventions that maximize efficiency while achieving a high level of effectiveness.
