What Are Evidence-based Treatments?

The Science Behind It

The more times scientists find that a treatment works, and the more times it works as well as or better than other treatments, the more we can count on it to address a problem. In other words, if there’s solid scientific proof that a particular treatment works in reducing symptoms for a lot of children, then we can say it is “evidence-based.”
