playing with toys The Center for Evidence-Based Practices (CEBP) is an applied research center of the Orelena Hawks Puckett Institute. The major aim of CEBP activities and initiatives is to bridge the research-to-practice gap in early intervention, early childhood education, parent and family support, and family-centered practices by conducting research, preparing practice-based research syntheses, and producing evidence-based products.

The CEBP provides researchers and practitioners with opportunities to work together to identify and promote adoption of practices informed by research. Both primary and secondary data analyses, applied research studies, and the development and testing of child, parent, and family interventions constitute the focus of CEBP initiatives.

Research-to-practice activities of the CEBP are grounded in conceptual models emphasizing the enhancement of healthy functioning and the promotion of child, parent, and family growth and development.
