REL 2014021 Stated Briefly: The correlates of academic performance for English language learner students in a New England district
This "Stated Briefly" report is a companion piece that summarizes the results of another report of the same name. The study examined student and program characteristics that are related to English proficiency and content area achievement for English language learner (ELL) students in one urban district in Connecticut. Study authors found that ELL students in special education had English proficiency scores significantly lower than the mean for all ELL students in all grades, and that students' English proficiency scores were associated with both math and reading performance in all grades. Results also showed that there were no clear patterns in the relationship between the type of ELL program attended and students' English proficiency, math, or reading scores.

NCSER 20133001 Synthesis of IES Research on Early Intervention and Early Childhood Education
The report describes what has been learned from research grants on early intervention and early childhood education funded by the Institute's National Center for Education Research and National Center for Special Education Research, and published in peer-reviewed outlets through June 2010. This synthesis describes contributions to the knowledge base produced by IES-funded research across four focal areas:
* Early childhood classroom environments and general instructional practices;
* Educational practices designed to impact children's academic and social outcomes;
* Measuring young children's skills and learning; and
* Professional development for early educators.
Research supported by IES has made significant contributions to the evidence base in these areas. The authors also raise important questions for education research in the future, including:
* What are the crucial features of high-quality early childhood education?
* Which instruction is most effective for which children and under what circumstances?
* How do we effectively and efficiently support teachers in improving their instruction?

WWC SSREC12 Randomized, Controlled Trial of the LEAP Model of Early Intervention for Young Children With Autism Spectrum Disorders
The study, Randomized, Controlled Trial of the LEAP Model of Early Intervention for Young Children With Autism Spectrum Disorders, examined the intervention Learning Experiences and Alternative Program for Preschoolers and Their Parents (LEAP) which involves immersing children with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) into preschool classrooms with other children. The study examined the effectiveness of a full two-year LEAP training and support model for teachers on improving outcomes of preschool children with ASD, as compared to a limited LEAP model in which no professional development support was provided. Researchers found that the full LEAP model produced positive impacts on behavior, communication, intellectual outcomes, and social outcomes of preschool children. This study is a well-implemented randomized controlled trial that meets WWC evidence standards without reservations.

WWC SSREE12 WWC Review of the Report "Enhancing the Effectiveness of Special Education Programming for Children with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder Using a Daily Report Card"
Enhancing the Effectiveness of Special Education Programming for Children with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder Using a Daily Report Card, examined whether the use of daily report cards in elementary school improved behavior and academic achievement among students diagnosed with combined inattentive and hyperactive/impulsive attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) and comorbid oppositional defiant disorder (ODD)/conduct disorder. Sixty-three students participated in the study, each with a unique teacher, and were randomly assigned either to the intervention condition or to the comparison condition. Researchers compared behavioral and academic outcomes for the intervention and comparison groups at the conclusion of the academic year. The study found statistically significant positive differences between the intervention and comparison group on three of the four measures in the external behavior domain. The study found no statistically significant or substantively important differences in two other domains, reading achievement/literacy, and math achievement. This study is a well-implemented randomized controlled trial that meets WWC evidence standards without reservations.
