Academic interventions for students with emotional and behavioral disorders (EBD) is a critical area of practice and one that has not been fully developed by large-scale research. Students with EBD are characterized by an ability to achieve academically but demonstrate a failure to do so. Some research on effective instructional practices for students with EBD does exist, but the predominance of single-case research in this area does not typically demonstrate or report a statistical effect size, making the selection and application of effective instructional strategies sometimes difficult. This article provides a thorough review of the existing research on instructional interventions for students with EBD and calculates effect sizes so that recommending effective instructional practices is more easily accomplished. The authors found 16 "types" of academic interventions and reported the individual and mean improvement rate differences. (Contains 1 table.)
